Enevelde are a solo project from Norway that plays a very modern, aggressive and epic form of black metal and this is a review of their self titled 2020 album which will be released on May 29th by Terratur Possessions.
Dark yet melodic guitar leads start off the album while all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them. All of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with the vocals being mostly deep, demonic yet grim black metal screams and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the music is mostly rooted in a modern style. The songs also add in some session work from members of Whoredom Rite and Mare along with the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody.
All of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them and at times the music also has it's raw moments with the tremolo picking riffs, synths can also be heard briefly on the closing track. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Norwegian and cover dark themes.
In my opinion Enevelde are a very great sounding aggressive and epic black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Kroppens Mani" and "Daukjottet". 8 out of 10.
