Haxandraok are a duo with embers from Poland and Greece that plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Ki si Kil Ud Da Kar Ra" which will be released in December by Van Records.
Ethnic sounding musical instruments start off the album before going into a heavier musical direction. Clean vocals can be heard on a few tracks as well as the vocals bringing in more of an angry shouting black metal style. while the riffs also add in a great amount of melody and when the music speeds up a great amount of blat beats can be heard.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of blast beats and tremolo picking which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling and as the album progresses a brief use of spoken word parts can be heard. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
A great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with some songs also bringing in elements of ritualistic music as well as one track also introducing acoustic guitars onto the recording. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover hexcraft, qliphotic sorcery and the Draconian current.
In my opinion Haxandraok are a very great sounding ritualistic and occult black emtal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Temptress Of UD DA KAR RA" and "Lilith Unbound". 8 out of 10.
