Black Coven are a band from Austria that plays a melodic mixture of black, death and pagan metal and this is a review of their 2018 ep "Everlost" which was released by Moonlight Productions.
A very hard and heavy sound starts off the ep along with the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the vocals also bring in a great amount of high pitched black metal s creams.
Death metal elements are also utilized quite a bit throughout the recording while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats along with the music also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the tracks sound like they could of easily been recorded and released in the 90's and acoustic guitars are added on the closing track.
Black Coven plays a musical style that goes back to the 90's melodic era of black, death and pagan metal, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover Paganism and Nature themes.
In my opinion Black Coven are a very great sounding melodic and old school mixture of black, death and pagan metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Ovation of the Wolves". 8 out of 10.
