Nazrak are a duo from France that plays a very atmospheric, melodic and old school form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Cantiques Funebres" which will be released on December 21st by Wolfspell Records.
A keyboard orientated intro starts off the album along with a brief use of thunder sounds before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking along with the vocals being mostly grim black metal screams and keyboards also mix into the heavier sections of the music.
A great amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing while some of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as some clean vocals also being utilized at times and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style and the music is very heavily rooted in the mid 90's era and the album closes with an instrumental.
Nazrak plays a keyboard orientated style of black metal that goes back to the 90's era while also being very raw and atmospheric at the same time, the production sounds very old school while t he lyrics are written in French and cover folklore, witchcraft, nature and traditions themes.
In my opinion Nazrak are a very great sounding old school keyboard orientated black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Le fantome et le mortel"and "Sapaudia'. 8/5 out of 10.
