Sweden's Wan have returned with a new recording which continues the raw, old school and satanic black metal style of previous releases and this is a review of their 2018 ep "Gammal ar aldst" which will be released on December 21st by Carnal Records.
A very fast and raw musical sound starts off the ep along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams as well as adding in some first wave influences at times as well as the music being mostly rooted in the 90's second wave era.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with some thrash elements also being utilized at times as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the riffs also add in a small amount of melody as the ep progresses.
On this recording Wan remain true to the raw, satanic and old school style of black metal from previous releases, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in a mixture of Swedish and English and cover Satanism, Occultism, Metal and Darkness themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Wan and if you are a fan of raw, old school and satanic black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Out Of Your League" and "Till maskarna slangd". 8 out of 10.
