Thyrane are a band from Finland that has had an album reviewed before in this zine and plays a keyboard orientated form of satanic black metal and this is a review of their 1997 demo "Black Harmony" which will be re-issued in 2017 by Woodcut Records.
A very heavy, dark and melodic sound starts off the ep and after awhile keyboards and high pitched black metal screams are added onto the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length and spoken word parts along with classical guitars can be heard briefly and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and all of the songs are done in a very true Nordic tradition.
Thyrane played a style of black metal that was very melodic and keyboard orientated on this recording while also having a more raw edge than what was presented on later releases, the production sounds very powerful for being a demo while the lyrics cover Satanism, Anti Christian and Misanthropic themes.
In my opinion this was a very great sounding recording from Thyrane and if you are a fan of keyboard orientated satanic black metal, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sacrifices" and "Satanic Ages Overture". 8 out of 10.
