Zornheym are a band from Sweden that plays a symphonic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Where Hatred Dwells And Darkness Reigns" which will be released in September by Non Serviam Records.
A very sci-fi orientated sound starts off the album along with some heavy and melodic riffing a few seconds later which also mixes in with the symphonic side of the recording and after awhile deep yet grim black metal vocals are added onto the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and there are also a couple of brief instrumentals which also introduces acoustic guitars onto the recording and one track also adds in a touch of oriental music along with a brief use of clean vocals and spoken word samples and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the last 2 tracks are very long and epic in length.
Zornheym plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in symphonic black meta while also mixing in some influences from other genres to stand out a bit more, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover short graphic stories.
In my opinion Zornheym are a very great sounding symphonic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Opposed" "Trifecta Of Horrors" and "Hestia. 8 out of 10.
