Vorga are a band based in Germany that plays a melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2019 ep "Radianty Gloom" which will be released on February 20th.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep along with some angry sounding black metal screams a few seconds later. A great amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing and when the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can also be heard which gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them along with the guitar leads being done in a very melodic style as well as giving the music more of a modern black metal style and clean playing can also be heard briefly on the closing track.
Vorga plays a style of black metal that is very melodic in the Swedish style of the genre, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Vorga are a very great sounding melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Black Age" and "Divine". 8 out of 10.
