Khandra are a duo from Belarus that plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 ep "All Id Of No Avail".
Melodic guitar leads start off the ep before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the vocals being mostly grim black metal screams.
A great amount of melody can be heard in the guitar riffing while the music also mixes in a touch of the modern atmospheric style as well as mixing it in with the rawness of the second wave style, both of the tracks are very long and epic in length and also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Khranda plays a style of black metal that is very raw, modern and melodic sounding, the production sounds very heavy and raw while the lyrics cover darkness, death and dying themes.
In my opinion Khranda are a very great sounding raw and melodic black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Where Death Has Settled In Life". 8 out of 10.
