Morkesagn are a band from Ukraine that plays a very raw and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Where Darkness Never Ends".
Clean playing starts off the album along with some melodic guitar leads becoming a very huge part of the recording a few seconds later which also leads up to a very fast and r aw black metal sound that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats and grim yet high pitched screams and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
A great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear clean singing being utilized in certain sections of the recording and the music also brings in a very dark atmosphere that is very heavily influenced by Swedish black metal and you can also hear a lot of 90's second wave influences in the bands musical style and as the album progresses grim whispers can be heard at times and clean playing also makes a return in some of the later tracks and the album closes with an instrumental.
Morkesagn plays a style of black metal that is very dark, raw and melodic and owes a great deal to the Swedish style of the genre, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover darkness, doom, mysticism and winter themes.
In my opinion Morkesagn are a very great sounding raw and melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Heart Of Darkness" and "Frost". 8 out of 10.
