Pagan Megalith are a band from Hungary that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording plays a very raw and acoustic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Tulveg/End Beyond" which was released by Spiritside Productions and will also be the final recording of the band.
Acoustic guitars along with some other folk instruments start off the album while blast beats and grim black metal screams can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording as well as the tremolo picking giving the songs a more raw feeling and all of the music is done with no electric instruments.
Finger picking and full chords can also be heard from the acoustic guitars while the songs also b ring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with one track bringing spoken word parts onto the recording as well as the music also having a very medieval feeling at times and a couple of the tracks are long and epic in length.
On this recording Pagan Megalith takes the raw black metal style into more of an acoustic direction as well as capturing the aggression with no electric guitars and adding in elements of folk music, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Hungarian and cover nihilism and death themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Pagan Megalith and if you are a fan of raw black metal and folk music, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sxakad az eg /Sky Is Ripping" "Tovestol/By The Root" and "Egy vilag omlik ossze/A World Collapses". 8 out of 10.
