This is a review of another recording from Norwa'ys Myrholt which continues the Norwegian style of black metal from previous releases and this is a review of his self released 2019 album "Solens soenn og Maanens Datter".
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly grim black metal screams while all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the riffs also add in a great amount of melody.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the guitar leads are done in a very melodic style. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the music also being very heavily rooted in the old school Norwegian style.
Clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording as well as one track also adding in a small amount of melodic vocals and as the album progresses a brief use of synths and first wave black metal elements can also be heard. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Norwegian and cover nature themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Myrholt and if you are a fan of Norwegian black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Kapittel 1" "Kapittel IV" and "Kapittel VII". 8 out of 10.
