Magni are duo from Phoenix, Arizona that plays a mixture of dark gothic folk, progressive music and black metal and this is a review of their self titled 2020 ep which will be released in September by Dead Games Records.
Folk instruments and acoustic guitars start off the ep along with some clean goth style vocals while the music also gets very progressive sounding at times. Whispered vocals can also be heard in some parts of the recording along with some drum beats also being added into certain sections of the tracks.
One track also introduces keyboards and symphonic elements onto the recording while grim black emtal screams can also be heard briefly. All of the tracks all sound very different from each other as well as always sticking to very very slow musical direction.
Magni plays a musical style that takes dark gothic folk, progressive rock and black metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover Norse Paganism themes.
In my opinion Magni are a very great sounding mixture of dark folk music,progressive rock and pagan black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ragnarok" and "Golden Fields". 8 out of 10.
