Warmoon Lord are a solo project from Finland that plays a very old school and medieval form of black metal and this is a review of his 2021 album "Battlespells" which will be released in June by Werewolf Records.
A very dark, heavy, melodic and epic sound starts off the album while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they also add in a great amount of melody along with some songs also adding in a small amount of medieval style battles.
When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling. Vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams along with some keyboards also being mixed in with the heavier sections of the tracks.
A ,lot of the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave tradition along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as some tracks also being very long and epic in length, some of the tracks are also very long and epic in length and one song also adds in a brief use of spoken word parts and acoustic guitars. The production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover War, Fantasy and Medieval themes.
In my opinion Warmoon Lord are a very great sounding old school and medieval black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Purging Nefarious Vortex" "Empowered With Battlespells" and "In Perennial Twilight". 8/5 out of 10.
