Piarevaracien are a band from Belarus that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording plays a folk orientated folk of pagan black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Nad Krajem Braslashkich Aziorau" which was released as a joint effort between Crush The Desert Records and Werewolf Promotion.
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the album while folk instruments also mix in with the heavier sections of the music at times. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Rough sounding pagan vocals are also added into some parts of the music while the vocals also mix in a great amount of crazy sounding black metal screams. Clean playing can also be heard on some of the tracks along with some very clear and melodic vocals also being introduced briefly as the album progresses.
Spoken word parts can also be heard in some parts of the recording along with the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody at times and most of the music sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction while one track shows the music speeding up briefly and adding in a small amount of blast beats as well as all of the songs sounding different from each other. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Belorussian and cover Paganism, Patriotism and Nature themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Piarevaracien and if you are a fan of folk orientated pagan black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ad Naradzennia" and "Pusteca". 8 out of 10.
