Cavus are a band from Finland that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very fast and aggressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "The New Era" which was released as a joint effort between Satanath and Final Gate Records.
Stringed instruments start off the album and after the intro the music goes 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 along with some growls also being used at times.
A lot of the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave era while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody and at times the lyrics add in crazy shouts as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Cavus creates another recording that remains true to the fast and aggressive black metal style of previous releases, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover death, evil and darkness themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Cavus and if you are a fan of fast and aggressive black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Killtech" "Morphine" "Presence Of Existence" and "There Will Be Blood". 8 out of 10.
