This Norwegian blackened thrash trio formed in 2007, self-released an EP a year later, and put out a debut full-length album Black Earth in 2010. Comparisons to Immortal are frequent, though the influences are swapped between the two bands; Immortal are first and foremost a black metal band, that happens to incorporate thrash influences, while Byfrost is primarly a thrash act with blackened vocals and an occasional Norse black vibe. As blackened thrash goes, this is pretty good, as the snarled vocals fit the aggressive riffs well, and there is decent variance from one song to the next. Could be an up-and-coming band.
