Sarg are a solo project from Poland that plays a very misanthropic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "XII - Night Of The Hunt" which was released by Black Death Production.
Dark sounding synths start off the album along with some voices in the background while spoken word parts can also be heard briefly before going into a heavier direction. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams as well as most of the tracks also being very long and epic in length.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling. All of the drum beats are also programmed along with the tracks also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the music also bringing in a great amount of 90's influences.
Synths also make a return in certain sections of the recording along with a brief use of horror movie samples which also gives the music more of a ritualistic atmosphere as well as all of the heavy riffing being done on power chords and avoiding any use of melody to focus on a heavier style and as the album progresses a brief use of guitar leads can also be heard. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness, evil, blasphemy, anti religion, anti human and anti life themes.
In my opinion Sarg are a very great sounding raw and misanthropic black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Old Blood" and "The Evil One". 8 out of 10.
