Chanid are a band from Poland that plays an old school form of occult black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Lucifer" which was released as a joint effort between Casus Belli Musica and Beverina.
A very dark and ritualistic sounding intro starts off the album before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams along with the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody.
A great amount of 90's influences can also be heard in the music while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and when guitar solos and leads a re utilized they are done in a very melodic style.
Chanid plays a style of occult black metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics are a concept album dealing with the loneliness and suffering of Lucifer.
In my opinion Chanid are a very great sounding old school occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Evocation Of Lucifer" "Under the Sign Of Lucifer" and "Stagnant Hours". 8 out of 10.
