Morknatt are a band from Spain that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2020 ep "Icarus" which was released by Abyssal Sounds Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep while the vocals are mostly angry yet high pitched sounding black metal screams. The riffs also add in a decent amount of melody along with the faster sections of the songs also utilize tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
You can also hear a lot of 90's influences in the bands musical style while still sounding up to date. All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style and as the ep progresses growls can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
On this recording Morknatt plays a style of black metal that is very raw, melodic and traditional sounding. The production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover Satanism, Misanthropy and Anti Religion themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Morknatt and if you are a fan of satanic black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hymn For The Goat" and "The Will Of Rats". 8 out of 10.
