'Jord Och Aska' is the 2nd full-length album by Nasheim since the band's inception in 2001 and represents, in many ways, a refinement, maturation and realization of much of the potential and promise hinted at in the earlier works. With sole member Erik Grahn's compositions and performances now being enhanced by graceful, beautifully recorded strings and the powerful drumming of David Ekevarn, 'Jord Och Aska' reaches higher peaks and plumbs deeper depths than its predecessor. It is an ambitious, intricately crafted, painstakingly detailed journey of over 40 minutes of continuous, thematically interwoven music, moving effortlessly between hopes and dreams, oppression and despair. Though its Nordic black metal roots remain distinguishable, 'Jord Och Aska' paints with progressive elements of doom metal, gothic rock and Nordic folk music to achieve a fuller palette of sounds than before in its approach to Nasheim's particular, misty sonic landscape. Adorned again with an exclusive oil painting by Ricky Jonsson and accompanied by atmospheric photography, the first press of 'Jord Och Aska' comes as collector's edition in 8-panel digipack, limited to 1000 copies.
