Sabhankra are a band from Turkey that has been featured before in this zine and plays an epic and melodic mixture of black and death metal on tihs recording and this is a review of their album "From The Frozen Mountains" which will be released in 2018 by Metalism Records.
Melodic guitar leads start off the album along with the faster sections of the songs bringing in a decent amount of blast beats while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams as well as the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody and the music also brings in a great amount of death metal influences.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while synths can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and they also give the music more of an epic and symphonic feeling and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses death metal growls and doom metla infleunces can also be heard briefly.
On this recording Sabhankra moves away from the folk elements and focuses more on an epic, symphonic and melodic mixture of black and death metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover epic themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sabhankra and if you are a fan of epic and melodic black/death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "They Are Everywhere" and "From The Frozen Mountains". 8 out of 10.
