Prognan are a band from Croatia that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that I would describe as being melodic, raw and primitive pagan/black metal and this is a review of their self released 2012 ep "Jama".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very strong, powerful and heavy tone with primitive sounding black metal riffs that dominate throughout the recording, as for the pianos they are only utilized on one song and bring a depressive feeling to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast pagan/black metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding with a great amount of dark sounding melodies being thrown into the riffing as well as some death metal influences, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding black metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking to enhance the darkness that is coming out of the music.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams along with a brief use of spoken word parts as well as some male and female clean singing, while the lyrics are written in Croatian and cover War and Paganism, as for the production it has a very heavy, raw and primitive sound while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is another great recording from Prognan and if you are a fan of their previous efforts, you should enjoy this new ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dzelat" and "Grob". RECOMEDNDED BUY.
