Greve are a band from Sweden that plays an old school form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 ep "Nidingsdas utav det Uraldriga" which will be released on August 19th by Purity Through Fire.
A very heavy, melodic and atmospheric sound starts off the ep along with some epic sounding synths, When guitar solos and leads are utilized they also use a decent amount of melody while both of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as the vocals being mostly grim sounding black metal screams.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can also be heard which also gives the music more of a raw feeling. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them, demonic growls can also b e heard at times and the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's era.
Greve plays a style of black metal that goes back to the raw 90's style that also mixes in epic synths of that era. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Swedish and cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion Greve are a very great sounding old school black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "I Svarta Solens Magi". 8 out of 10.
