ZHRINE are part of an extreme musical phenomenon rising from Iceland. Although the name is new, the band is not. Starting out under the GONE POSTAL moniker in 2007, they embraced a dark death metal approach at first. When changing their name last year, the band gave their music a more atmospheric quality, filled with bleak despair. Out of this metamorphosis ZHRINE finally came into being. Their debut album 'Unortheta' is now more than proving that the band made the right choices. This amazing piece of a newly formulated expression of black and death metal, sludge as well as other heavy and dark ingredients has all the chances to be regarded as one of the cornerstones of the burgeoning Icelandic scene.
