1 Review for 'Kvaen - The Funeral Pyre''The Funeral Pyre'
The best of Metal, vol. 43
How can a band sound like so many different eras of metal in just one release?! You can find lots of 80s Speed Metal influences (like Agent Steel), and even some of the 2000s Black/Speed influences (like Deströyer 666 and Desaster).
That's not that special, but what is very special is the fact that you can also find lots of melodic Black Metal influences (like early Dissection). That's enough to make it special right? No! There is even a hint of VIKING METAL! Yeah, that's right; we have a Melodic Black/Speed/Thrash Epic Pagan Metal here!
The production here is EPIC. One of the best mixes I've encountered in ages! You can hear lots of cool 70s studio tricks, like the channel switch in the middle of solos. The riffs and solos are incredibly old school and catchy, but the overall techniques and modern production make this a very desirable, modern effort indeed.
Have I talked about the first song here? Seriously dudes, this is one of the all time great metal songs! An epic song from start to finish (and an awesome album from start to finish!).
If you want a melancholic album, look elsewhere! But if you want to headbang to a point which your head comes off, you can't top this shit! A MUST-HAVE!
