Dzvera are a solo project from Bulgaria that plays a mixture of black metal and dark ambient and this is a review of his self rleeased 2015 album "Ancestral Tengrist Strength".
Dark sounding synths start off the album bringing in an atmospheric and ambient sound and after the intro the music goes into a very fast and raw black metal direction t hat also utilizes a great amount of blast beats and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and also bring in melodies at times.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while deep growls can also be heard at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and there are also some solos and leads being added into certain sections of the recording and they also bring in more of a melodic style and the ambient and heavy parts also start mixing together quite a bit throughout the recording along with drones also being utilized and some of the tracks are also ambient instrumentals which also adds in elements of shamanistic ritualistic music.
Dzvera plays a style of black metal that is very raw and atmospheric and also mixes in a lot of dark ambient elements to create a style of his own, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover the Tengrist Religion of the Bulgars of Eurasia.
In my opinion Dvzera are a very great sounding mixture of dark ambient and black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ancestral Tengrist Strength" "Exorcised Winter Ghouls" and "White Death". 8 out of 10.
