Mystherium are a band from Poland that plays a gothic form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2018 album "Zaglada".
Spoken word parts, stringed instruments and keyboards start off the album before going into a heavier direction which also introduces clean vocals onto the recording while grim black metal screams are also quite a bit throughout the album and the music is heavily rooted in the 90's.
A decent amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing while blast beats and tremolo picking can also be heard during the faster sections of the songs along with a couple of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as the music mixing in elements of goth and classical music and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style and the songs also bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Mystherium plays a style of gothic black metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics are written in Polish and cover anti Christianity, Patriotism and Polish history themes.
In my opinion Mystherium are a very great sounding gothic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Slawa! Wojna! Zwyciestwo" "Piesna pochwalne" and "Wedrowiec". 8 out of 10.
