Svartsyn
In Death
Company: Agonia
Release: 2017
Genre: Black
Reviewer: David Loveless
Published: 8/17/2017

Swedish one-man black metal project sounding grim as ever on 9th studio album
COMMENTS:
Over the course of their 25-year career, Sweden's black metal pioneers Svartsyn have released 9 full-length albums, 3 EPs, and a hand full of demo recordings, solidifying them as a consistently active band. Although originally consisting of a full lineup, Svartsyn has become a one-man project lead by multi-instrumentalist, Ornias. 'In Death', their 9th full-length is a grimly produced album with 7 harrowing tracks ranging from ice cold blast beats to mid-paced anthems of death and doom. Although better produced than the typical underground black metal album, it sounds murky and the mix is really low sounding. Still an impressive album though!
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Old school Darkthrone, Marduk, Arckanum
