Uvikra/Self Titled/2010 CD Review


  Uvikra are a 1 man band from Lithuania that plays a very old school form of 90's black metal on this album and this is a review of their self released debut album.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being used at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast raw black metal riffs that contain some of the best elements of second wave black metal and on a couple of songs there is some slow and soft playing that brings an acoustical feel to the music but it is only use for a few seconds, while the lead guitars are very distorted sounding black metal guitar leads.

Vocals are all high pitched black metal scrams, while the lyrics cover dark and occult themes, as for the production it has a very dark and raw sound to it.

In my opinion Uvikra create some very good second wave black metal with this release and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ritualistic Preparation" and "Plagued By Death". RECOMMENDED BUY.
