Hamvak are a solo project originally from Hungary but now located in Germany that plays a raw mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of his self titled 2017 demo which was released as a joint effort between Neverheard Distro and Fekete Terror Productions.
Battle sounds start off the demo before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats along with some death metal growls a few seconds later while black metal screams are also utilized at times and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful.
Most of the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's while the music also adds in elements of war metal along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as all of the tracks being very long and epic in length and the music always remains.
Hamvak plays a musical style that takes war, black and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover ancestral legends, superstitions, Heathen cosmology, sorcery and ritual themes.
In my opinion Hamvak are a very great sounding raw mixture of war, black and death metal and if you are a fan of t hose musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Chants Of The Primordial Pantheon". 8 out of 10.
