Wan are a band from Sweden that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style I would describe as being a raw and primitive form of satanic black metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Enjoy The Filth" which was released by Carnal Records.
"Day Of Reckoning" begins with heavy guitar and bass riffs along with some drums and grim sounding black metal vocals and then the song starts mixing in first wave black metal elements in both guitars and vocals.
"Pentagram Rockers" begins with some old school black metal guitar and bass riffs along with some drums and grim vocals and their are also some black'n'roll elements being thrown into the song along with some 80's influences and the music all mid paced to slow.
"Swing The Hammer" begins with some fast and primitive black metal guitar and bass riffs which leads up to some blast beats and high pitched screams along with some back up shouts and then the music starts slowing down a bit and then switching back and forth between slow and fast parts.
"Ni Skall Do" begins with black metal screams, guitars, bass and drums and is under a minute with some primitive riffing.
'Helvite" begins with some slow guitar and bass riffs along with some drums and black metal vocals and after awhile thrash elements are added into the song.
"Pagan Metal Damnation" begins with some old school black metal guitar riffs before the bass drums and grim screams kick in and then the music gets more primitive sounding and the music is all mid paced along with some melodic guitar riffing being utilized towards the end.
"The Charger" begins with some dark and melodic guitar riffing before the black/thrash riffs and drums kick in along with some 1st and 2nd wave style black metal vocals and the music starts getting a lot heavier.
"Northern Brothers" begins with some dark guitar riffs and drums before the grim black metal vocals start kicking in and after awhile the bass guitars get more powerful and the music gets more fast and primitive along with some blast beats before returning to a more mid paced direction while also returning to the faster parts at times.
''Enjoy The Filth" begins with some primitive bass and guitar riffs before adding in some blast beats and black metal vocals along with some deep demonic growls before slowing down a bit and then switching back and forth between fast and slow parts and the song also utilizes some thrash influences.
"Djevelsang" begins with drum beats, primitive guitar riffs along with some grim screams and the song is under a minute and towards the end the song slows down and you can hear the bass guitars.
"Trollmor" begins with drums and black rock style guitar riffs along with some bass guitars and shouting style vocals and the song switches back and forth between slow and mid paced parts along with a brief use of grim screams.
"Belial" begins with some primitive black metal guitar and bass riffs along with some drums and grim vocals which also utilize a small amount of melodic elements and the song stays in a slow direction.
"Burn" begins with some powerful bass guitars and drums before the thrash influenced guitar riffs and black metal vocals start kicking in and after awhile the music starts switching back and forth between slow and fast parts.
Song lyrics are written in a mixture of English and Swedish and cover Satanism, Occultism, Paganism, Anti Christianity and Filth themes, while the production has a very 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 sounding recording from Wan and if you are a fan of old school satanic black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pentagram Rockers" "Hellvite" "Enjoy The Filth" and "Belial". RECOMMENDED BUY.
