All My Sins are a band from Serbia that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw form of pagan black metal and this is a review of their 2020 ep "Plamen i Led" which was released as a joint effort between Casus Belli Musica and Beverina.
The ep opens up with a cover of Luna's "Ogledalo Lune" which starts out with some semi clean playing along with some spoken word parts a few seconds later. Synths are also utilized at times as well as mixing in with the heavier sections of the music and the riffs also add in a decent amount of melody.
Grim black metal vocals are also a very huge part of the recording while clean pagan vocals are also utilized at times. They also bring in a cover of Old Wainds's "Daleko And Juga"which is also done in more of a melodic and atmospheric style while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
When the music finally speeds up a decent amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the recording more of a raw feeling as well as the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, synths can also be heard at times and they close the ep with an original track that is also very long and epic in length and also introduces acoustic guitars onto the recording. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover South Slavic Culture and Mysticism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from All My Sins and if you are a fan of raw, atmospheric pagan black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Where The Wild Winds Blow". 8 out of 10.
