Aryman area band from Poland that plays a very raw and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Czarne Rytualy Otchlani" which was released as a joint effort between Lower Silesian Stronghold and Hass Weg Productions.
Dark soundscapes start off the album and after the intro the music goes into a very fast and raw black metal direction that also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats along with some grim vocals and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave tradition of the genre.
At times the music brings in a decent amount of melody and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and at times the vocals mix in a small amount of melody in with the grimness and when guitar leads are finally utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic style and ritualistic chants are added onto the last track briefly.
Aryman plays a style of satanic black metal that is very dark, heavy, and raw in the second wave tradition, the production sounds very dark, raw and old school while the lyrics are written in Polish and cover Satanism, Anti Christianity, Apocalypse and Hatred themes.
In my opinion Aryman are a very great sounding raw and satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "W Grobowyn Transie" "Diabelska Swiatynia Umarlych" "Ceremonia" and "Z Czelusci Nocnych Koszmarow". 8 out of 10.
