Shaytan are a band from Brazil that plays a very satanic and occult form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 ep "Ancient Shadows".
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the ep before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with the music also being very heavily rooted in the 90's style.
Deep growls can also be heard at times while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the songs also adding in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffs also adding in a small amount of dark sounding melodies and on the closing track guitar leads can also be heard briefly.
Shaytan plays a style of satanic occult black metal that is very raw, fast, aggressive and traditional sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism and Sumerian/Assyrian/Babylonian Mythology themes.
In my opinion Shaytan are a very great sounding satanic occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lords Of Hell" and "Dark Mistress Of Death". 8/5 out of 10.
