Xvarhnah are a band from Italy that plays a very depressive and atmospheric mixture of black and doom metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Crown" which was released by Depressive Illusions.
A very dark, atmospheric and epic sounding synth starts off the ep which also uses a variety of many different sounding keys and a few seconds later melodic doom metal guitar leads and high pitched depressive screams make their present on the recording along with some operatic female vocals being added a few seconds later.
You can hear a lot of elements of dark metal in the bands musical style and the music also brings in a great mixture of both clean and heavy parts along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length and stick to mostly a slow or mid paced musical direction.
Xvarhnah takes a very atmospheric, melodic and depressive style of black metal and mixes it with dark and doom metal to create a sound of their own along with a great amount of ambient elements, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Spirituality, Feelings and Mysticism.
In my opinion Xvarhnah are a very great sounding atmospheric mixture of black and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Crown". 8 out of 10.
