Vancuver B.C's Kabexnuv have returned with a new recording which continues the raw and atmospheric style of occult black metal from previous releases and this is a review of his 2017 album "Dzyan" which was released by Bud Metal Records.
A very dark, heavy and raw sound starts off the album while the vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them as well as the music being very heavily rooted in the 90's old school tradition.
A great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the guitar solos and leads are done in a very raw and melodic fashion along with the faster sections of the songs also bringing in a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, clean playing can also be heard briefly on a couple of tracks and on the closing song a small amount of spoken word parts can be heard and they also give the music more of ritualistic feeling.
Kabexnuv creates another recording that remains true to the raw and atmospheric style of occult black metal from previous releases, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are based upon the writings of H.P Blavatsky.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Kabexnuv and if you are a fan of raw and atmospheric occult black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Seven Sublime Lords" "Dyzu Becomes Fohat" and "Like A Thread Through Many Jewels". 8 out of 10.
