Gravitnir are a band from Sweden that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a very melodic form of occult black metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "NaHash" which will be re-issued in February of 2020 by Clavis Secretorvm.
A synth orientated intro starts off the album before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with the music also being very heavily rooted in the Swedish style.
The riffs also bring in a great amount of melody along with the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them.
Most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length as well as the music also adding in a great amount of 90's influences along with a couple of tracks also adding in a brief use of classical guitars. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Occultism, Luciferian, Qabalah, Dark Heathendom and Witchcraft themes and one of the tracks is also written in Swedish.
In my opinion this was another great sounding recording from Gravitnir and if you are a fan of melodic occult black metal, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Luciferian Flame"and "Sphere Of The Acausal". 8 out of 10.
