Dz-nga
The Sachem's Tales
Company: Avantgarde
Release: 2017
Genre: Black
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Published: 8/27/2017

Folksy black metal that tells a great story
COMMENTS:
With the release of The Sachem's Tales, Dz-nga have given us an album that feels like a split of Ulver's 'Bergtatt' and 'Kveldssanger'. You get these really magnificent classical and acoustic pieces layered with some Cascadian black metal riffs that really ping off each other. Lyrically, the album draws inspiration from Native American mythology, specifically from the Algonquins, which really lends some cool lyrical content to the album. I felt the black metal portion of the music took a backseat to the more mellow portions, which is fine but left me wanting a little more aggression.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Ulver, Fen, Falls of Rauros
