Spain's Itnuveth have returned with a new recording which continues the pagan black metal style of previous releases and this is a review of their 2018 ep "Pagan Martyrs" which was released by Base Record Productions.
An atmospheric sounding intro starts off the ep along with some acoustic guitars and folk instruments being added onto the recording a few seconds later which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the music at times as well as the vocals being mostly grim black metal screams.
Death metal growls are also used at times while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking which also gives the music a more raw feeling along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, melodic chants and spoken word parts can also be heard briefly as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Itnuveth creates another recording that remains true to the pagan black metal styles of previous releases, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover Norse mythology, Witchcraft, Warriors and Battle themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Itnuveth and if you are a fan of pagan black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Pagan Martyrs". 8 out of 10.
