Horna/Mustu Kaipuu-Saatanan Tionen Evankeliumi/Moribund Records/December Morti/2009 CD Review

 Horna are a black metal band from Finland that is a very well known name in the scene and this is a review of their unreleased songs from the "Envaatnags Elfos Sold Esgantaavne" album and did not see the light of day until 2009 and this is a review of their unreleased track album "Musta Kaipuu-Saatanan Toinen Evankeluimi" which was released as a joint effort between Moribund Records and Debemur Morti.

Drums are mostly fast playing with some blast beats and slow to mid paced parts, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the guitars which are very primal and at times they have a very powerful sound.

Rhythm guitars are mostly mid paced to fast black metal riffs that occasionally use some melodies but stick to being primitive and raw with a lot of early 90's influences and only a small amount of slow riffing, and there are little to no guitar leads or solos present on this recording.

Vocals are all high pitched black metal screams with some harsh style viking vocals being used on one song, while the lyrics are written in Finnish and cover Satanic and Occultic themes, as for the production it is very raw and dark sounding in the classic black metal tradition.

In my opinion this is another good release from Horna and fans of their other works would enjoy this recording as well. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Piina" "Hnohedettu Uaqni" "Oi Kallis Kotiman" and "Sieluhaaska". RECOMMENDED BUY.
