Last Friday was not possible to do this article, due to some changes in the back office of the BAZ website.
Well, till now everything is ok, and it will continue. So let me stop the crap talk and start with the music. Because that is all that matters and keeps us alive. So my travels through the world started…
Title: Sylvan Coven
Release date: 01 October 2021
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording
After one album, one EP, one single, arrives at me the second album from this Russian band. And all this in just 1 year and almost 8 months. If I liked/loved the previous works, this one is even better. The band is always rising up in quality. I had the pleasure to review both past releases (Album and EP) and also made a small article about this band. You can check it by clicking on the links (Album, EP, Article.) You must check this amazing band.
To start a curious fact. I found this week (started the talk with Sílvia one of the BAZ family members) that the band’s name has several meanings, depends on the country language. For example. In Catalan, means “New times” and in Portuguese “Nosso tempo” and then is French. That looks that is the name of the band. It is? Well, couldn’t confirm. But now the music… The band moves inside the Atmospheric Black Metal and the Blackgaze. I did enjoy the music, the atmosphere around the songs. I advise you to check the single for the future album.
I was contacted by this band and thanks a lot for that. You (cause it is one-man-band) give me the chance to know your band. And made me travel back to check the previous works. Thanks a lot. What we have here is a very good and cohesive/strong Black Metal release. I did enjoyed a lot listening to this album and recommend it.
This two-man band, featuring two well-known persons behind the Portuguese Black Metal scene will release a new album the next month and I am already pleased to listen to it. But… I admit… Not the best release of them till now. It has good songs, the band style is there, but… But… Hmmm… Didn’t grab me so well like the previous releases. It’s not bad, beware of that, but it’s missing something to “grab my balls” (it’s an expression in my country to say that is very good).
Don’t forget to support the bands and labels.
