Ygfan are a band from Hungary that has been featured before in this zine and plays post black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Hamvakbol" which was released by Sun & Moon Records.
A few seconds of silent starts off the album before adding in a brief use of nature sounds while drums are added onto the recording a few seconds alter along with some acoustic guitars as well as going into a heavier direction a few seconds later and the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody.
Vocals are mostly grim black metal screams while clean vocals can also be heard at times along with a great portion of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style and whispers can also be heard in certain sections of the recording, elements of post rock are also used quite a bit throughout all of the tracks and when guitar leads are finally utilized they are done in a very melodic style and all of the music sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction.
Ygfan creates another recording that remains true to the atmospheric style of post black metal from their previous release, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Hungarian and cover nature themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Ygfan and if you are a fan of post black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Maya" "Vonzasban" and "Memento Mori". 8 out of 10.
