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!
