Vahrzaw are a band from Australia that has been featured before in this zine and plays a raw mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Husk" which which will be released in April by Blood Harvest.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats along with the vocals being mostly grim black metal screams as well as some death metal growls being used at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
A decent amount of dark sounding melodies can be heard in the riffing while the solos and leads are done in an old school death metal fashion as well as having their melodic moments along with the tremolo picking also giving the songs a more raw feeling and the music also has a lot of 90's influences but done in a more modern fashion and as the album progresses clean playing can also be heard briefly on a few tracks.
Vahrzaw creates another recording that remains true to their mixture of black and death metal from the previous release, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and occult themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Vahrzaw and if you are a fan of black and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fiends In The Aether" "The King In Yellow" and "Husk". 8 out of 10.
