Zloslut are a band from Serbia that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Sahar" which was released by Morbid Chapel Records.
Clean playing starts off the album before going into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction. Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams along with some whispers also being used at times and when the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Clean vocals can also be heard briefly along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses a brief use of ritualistic spoken word parts can also be heard and towards the end synths are also used.
On this recording Zloslut takes their music into more of a modern occult black metal style. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Spirituality, and Philosophy themes along with one song being inspired by Hindu Mythology.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Zloslut and if you are a fan of occult black emtal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Quest" and "To Break The Cycle Of Samsara". 8 out of 10.
