AKVAN ”Forgotten Glory”

”Forgotten Glory”
(Shaytan Productions)

Battle Helm Rating

Black metal from the Middle East is not the most common thing in my collection. And there are obvious reasons for that. Not that there aren’t any metalheads in the Middle East. More because of the totalitarian societies they live in. Musically this is no different from any other black metal. Okay, there are parts of traditional Iranian music thrown in but it is still guitar, bass and drums that form the foundation. There is an ethereal side to this that I like. In all the black metal chaos that AKVAN creates there is a dreamy feel. I would not go as far as labelling this atmospheric, but it is drawn that way at least. A cool release. Anders Ekdahl
