Satarial are a band from Russia that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording plays a mixture of pagan, folk, and black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Blessed Brigit" which was released as a joint effort between Symbol Of Domination Productions and Death Portal Studio.
Heavy guitars and folk instruments start off the album and after awhile black metal screams along with pagan chanting are added onto the recording and female vocals are also used at times while most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
At times the vocals get very grim and you can also hear a decent amount of melody in the guitar riffing and when guitar leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic fashion and as the album progresses more symphonic elements are added onto the recording and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction.
On this recording Satarial goes for more of a folk, pagan and black metal mixture this time around, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Celtic Paganism and Occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Satarial and if you are a fan of folk, pagan, and black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Manifest Of Paganism" and "Formation Of The Moon". 8 out of 10.
