The Magik Way are a band from Italy that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very ritualistic and avant garde form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 dvd "Ananke" which was released by Sad Sun Music and consists of live performances, experimentalism and documentary elements.
A spoken and ritualistic intro starts off the dvd before going into a live performance which starts out with violins and an introduction which also shows the band practicing in a rehearsal room and the song starts out with an avant garde vibe along with some spoken word parts and drum beats.
Clean guitars are added into some parts of the music along with the dvd mixing in a video and the dvd also brings in live performances along with the music also having a psychedelic and experimental vibe at times and the clean vocals also have a very avant garde vibe to them.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion while live rituals are also performed at times and after awhile grim black metal screams make their presence known and the video also shows a Qabalistic and Hermetic approach to rituals in some parts of the recording.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding video from The Magic Way and if you are a fan of ritualistic and experimental black metal, you should check out this dvd. 8/5 out of 10.
