Kirkebrann are a band from Norway that plays a very raw, melodic, blasphemous and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Nar Alt Dor" which was release y Blackcrowned Records.
Dark and atmospheric sounding synths start off the album along with some spoken word parts and a few seconds later a heavy guitar sound makes its way onto the recording and after the intro the music starts going for more of a melodic black metal sound along with some blast beats and grim screams as well as a great amount of raw aggression.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and the solos and leads the band uses remain true to a melodic style of black metal and one of the later tracks also brings in a brief use of clean singing and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Kirkebrann plays a style of black metal that is very raw and melodic and also has a Swedish feeling at times, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics are written in a mixture of English and Norwegian and cover Satanism, Occultism and Blasphemous themes.
In my opinion Kirkebrann are a very great sounding raw and melodic satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Incoming" "Bombehagl" "Necrocosmos" and "Tal Satan". 8 out of 10.
