Varg/Blutaar/NoiseArt Records/2010 CD Review

  Varg are a band from Germany that plays viking/black metal and this is a review of their 2010 album "Blutaar" which was released by NoiseArt Records.

Drums are mostly mid paced drumming with some fast playing and blast beats, while the bass playing has a very powerful tone and follows the riffs that are coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars are mostly mid paced to fast viking/black metal riffs that contain a great amount of melody and a thrash edge, while the lead guitars and melodic sounding viking/black metal guitar solos with some classic metal influences, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they bring a medieval pagan sounding edge to the music.

Vocals are high pitched black metal screams with some deep death metal growls, while the lyrics are written in German and are about Norse/Germanic Paganism and Mythology, as for the production on this recording which was recorded at Stage One Studio in Buhne, Germany during the months of October and November of 2009 sounds very professional and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this album.

In my opinion Varg are a very talented pagan/black metal band that should appeal to all fans of this genre. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wolfsmond" "Invicitus" "Nebellen" and "Alter Fiend". RECOMMENDED BUY.
