Mavorim are a band from Germany that plays an raw and old school form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Silent Leges Inter Arma" which was released by Purity Through Fire.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the album along with some elements of ambient before going into a heavier direction while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams as well as the guitar solos and leads being done in a very melodic style and when the music speeds up blast beats can be heard.
When tremolo picking is utilized it gives the songs more of a raw feeling while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the vocals also adding in a melodic tone briefly as well as the music also adding in a great amount of 90's influences and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and they close the album with an ambient outro.
Mavorim plays a style of black metal that is very raw and old school in the 90's tradition, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in German and cover death, murder, hate, paranormal activities, paganism and German folklore themes.
In my opinion Mavorim are a very great sounding raw and old school black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Das Fleisch der Engel" "Heimatboden" and "Der Told wolt ich sein". 8 out of 10.
