Juodvarnis are a band from Lithuania that plays a progressive and melodic mixture of pagan, black and death metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Nerimo Dienos" which was released by Dangus Productions.
Viking war battle sounds start before going into a heavier musical direction while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them. Atmospheric sounding keyboards are also a dded into some part of the recording along with the vocals also adding in a thrash style bordering on death metal.
Clean vocals are also utilized at times while the music also gets very progressive sounding in some parts of the recording. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style along with the riffs also adding in a great amount of melody and when the music speeds up blast beats can also be heard.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with a great portion of the tracks also being very long and epic in length as well as the music also mixing in a great amount of dark, black and pagan metal elements, sitar's and percussion's can also be heard in some parts of the recording and the album closes with a cover A.M's "Trys". The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Lithuanian and cover Paganism and Nature themes,.
In my opinion Juodvarnis are a very great sounding progressive and melodic mixture of d ark, black, pagan and death metal and if you are fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Is Amziu Saknu" "Tik Dulkes" and "Sielos Dugne". 8 out of 10.
