Temnoles,ye are a band from Russia that plays a mixture of folk, pagan and melodic black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Skazaniya" which was released by Grimm Distribution.
Female pagan vocals start off the album and they also mix in with the heavier sections of the songs along with a great amount of grim black metal screams while the music also brings in a great amount of harps and keyboards and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard while death metal growls are also used at times along with the music also bringing in a great amount of 90's influences, throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Spoken word parts can also be heard briefly and as the album progresses symphonic elements can also be heard at times while some songs also add in a small amount of clean guitars along with all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and clean male vocals are also added on one of the tracks.
Temnoles,ye plays a musical style that takes melodic black metal, pagan and folk metal and takes the genres back to their 90's roots, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics are written in Russian and cover Paganism themes.
In my opinion Temnoles,ye are a very great sounding mixture of pagan, folk and melodic black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Gamayun" "Videniye" "Khvalynskiy Pokhod" and "Bylina". 8 out of 10.
