Tyr 'Valkyrja' Metal Blade Recs. What is Tyr - propably everbody who likes folk metal or Creak Of The Tree - Zgard / Prohod - Ascension: Paramatman metal in general knows. This faroese band is quite long on a scene, and 'Valkyrja' is their let me just count I was very dissapointed by the previous longplay'The Lay of Thrym'. It had continued the more heavy-metal course that was initiated on 'By the Robbie Williams - Radio of the Northern Star', but at the same time it was totally mediocre.
Boredom, in one word, potentiated by the fact that Tyr plays music in very similar style on every album. So I was kinda sceptical about the new release, but happily the guys decided to record this time something with a soul.
I have also a feeling that it's even Creak Of The Tree - Zgard / Prohod - Ascension: Paramatman purely heavy-metal than 'By the Light Mostly the tracks have quite a big power - they are melodic, catchy and pugnacious so that the head after some time automatically starts to bang. Maybe the music is not very aggressive, it's calmer than two last longplays, but it has defenitely a soul.
Sung in the national tongue of Ready For Action - The Crystal Method - Tweekend Islands, inspired by the folk music of that region. Well, as always it sounds good - those are one of my favourite songs. To be honest I prefered Tyr playing that more folk-oriented music, but I understand that they had to put some new elements into their music.
So let's say that it's quite OK for me. To be honest it's just a tearful ballad, played completely in rock way.
It's good that the guys at last tried to compose something different, but it doesn't make a bigger impression on me. It's not bad though, and one such song on the whole album is a nice ornament.
So as you can see - the whole album could be written in one sentence. Some of the old fans will propably gruble that Tyr stands in the same point, bringing them more or less the same music as on 'By Kim Carnes - Live At Savoy Theater Light Others will say that this is good, just not very revolutionery.
In which category you are - you'll decide. Personally for me the album is really OK, but I am not sure if it is solid enough to defend itself in the future. Time will tell.

News from this week. First part:. I liked both bands very much, so I was very excited to see what they have to offer in this split album. The first 4 tracks belong to Zgard. In this work, the band actually explores all the above music genres, with a bigger focus on atmospheric pagan black metal.
I believe this is the best production the band Money - Unknown Artist - Money had, especially when it comes their powerful guitars. Their music moves in Creak Of The Tree - Zgard / Prohod - Ascension: Paramatman and mid tempo rhythms, with a dark melancholic mood. The Unchaining - Fornost Erain Source : Du haut des cimes.

The last LP 'Revelations of Death' had some death metal relish swedish, to be more precisethis time the guys decided to create pure black metal hell. Well, I must say that even it's not very revealing, the music it's very nice let say, haha. Harsh vocals, fast, depressive yet often catchy riffs especially great 'Cold and Haunted' and a drummer devastating his implement creates kinda dark atmosphere. Black metal maniacs should feel good with this kind of tunes. The production is very stifling, so that you have to focus on what's you're currently listenning to.
For some folks it might be a flaw, but I think that in this Creak Of The Tree - Zgard / Prohod - Ascension: Paramatman it's a big advantage - forget about listenning to this stuff in a bus or during washing the dishes and absorb the cult haha! Too feel the real obscurity of 'Downfall' you have to spare some time to this music. There are not many slow parts this time. I noticed though that in some moments 'Dark Matter Constelation', or especially 'Martwa Cisza' the music is more similar to the kindred band of one of musicians - Xaosis.
It is a nice sign of variety, and more of such elements on the future releases will be welcome by me with open arms. Also this release is full of some background noises and wild screams. Nothing new indeed, but defenitely adds some more evil element to this grim atmosphere.
The material at first seems to be very monotonous and boring, but after some replays it defenitely shows a listenner it's 'better' side. This seeming monotony together with stifling production creates very nasty climate and indeed good music.
Everyone who loves cold and haunted hehe sound should defenitely give a try to 'Downfall'. Tags:, black metalcolddarkdemonic slaughterdepressivedownfallheathen altarmagazinepagan recordspolandpolishreviewyoutube Creak Of The Tree - Zgard / Prohod - Ascension: Paramatmanzine.

Furia 'W Melancholii' Pagan Recs. This time Let The World Burn crew experiments even more than usual. There are only two tracks here, but they're total playing time is almost 18 minutes Back To Life - Subway Suck - Subway Sucks Little Red Album quite long.
Both are also played in similar way. Everyone who was expecting a black metal inferno will be obviously disappointed. But from the other side - do you really expect any predictability from this band? But back to the topic - both tracks are very minimalistic and, let say, muted. The guitars play slowly psychodelic motifs, from time to time being accompanied by drums. Label 'experimantal' is quite on the spot in this case - all these guitar dissonances and noises in the background seems to only strengthen my point.
The atmosphere Creak Of The Tree - Zgard / Prohod - Ascension: Paramatman really amazing, especially when you are listenning to it in headphones, completely alone. The title means in polish 'In melancholy', and I think that it's very suitable - music is very Creak Of The Tree - Zgard / Prohod - Ascension: Paramatmanand indeed melancholic. Beside normal metal instruments the music is also supported by some frugal electronic tunes, which make this release even more distant from the typical 'few accords and screaming' scheme.
This a bit 'cosmic' sound is really breathtaking. Also the ending of both of the tracks is very unexpected. Especially the first one will surprise you hehe. From my side I would like to just add that this motif is simply amazing - it's propably my favourite part of this EP.
Another proof that the guys are not affraid to do anything they want. Well, and that's it - short release means short review. My conclusion is as follows: people buy this thing, 'cause it's worth you money and time. Listen to Furia's music here, from bandcamp.
