Zvijer are a band from Bosnia that plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Vjecnost Trulezi" which was released by Werewolf Promotion.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the album along with a small amount of whispers and Gregorian chants before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams.
A lot of t he music is very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave tradition while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them as well as the riffs also bringing in a small amount of melody and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic fashion.
Zvijer plays a style of black metal that is very raw, old school and traditional sounding, the production sounds very raw and powerful while t he lyrics a re written in a mixture Bosnian and English and cover death and Balkanian dark folklore.
In my opinion Zvijer are a very great sounding raw and traditional black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Heretical Balkanian Sabbathism" "Rural Watelands" and "...From Black Womb Of Earth". 8 out of 10.
