Sabhankra are a band from Turkey that plays an epic and melodic mixture of black, death and folk metal and this is a review of t heir 2014 album "Seers Memoir" which was released by Hairbn Productions.
Atmospheric sounds start off the album and a few seconds later heavy guitars start to mix in and the synths also bring in a progressive feeling at times and after a couple of minutes grim and deep vocals are added onto the recording and after the intro melodic guitar leads which are also a huge part of most of the tracks are added into the music along with some elements of thrash and melodic death metal and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
There are a great amount of fast playing and high pitched black metal screams present throughout the recording along with a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with a few tracks that are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses clean singing can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with the guitar leads adding in folk elements into their melodic sound and the synths also make a return on some of the later songs giving the album more of an epic feeling while towards the end one of the tracks brings in acoustic guitars.
Sabbankra plays a style that mixes the melodic sides of black and death metal together which they also mix in with thrash and folk influences along with some epic synths to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover epic themes.
In my opinion Sabbankra are a very great sounding melodic and epic mixture of black, death and folk metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Against The False Gods" "Dancing With Death" and "A Star to Shine". 8 out of 10.
