Germany's Suidakra have returned with a new recording which continues the melodic mixture of black, death and folk metal from their previous releases and this is a review of their 2021 album "Wolfbrite" which will be released on June 25th by MDD Records.
Chain and whip sounds start off the album along with some keyboards and spoken word parts a few seconds later before going into a heavier direction. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style and the vocals are a mixture of black metal screams and clean pagan singing.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. The riffs also add in a lot of melody along with the faster riffing also adding in some tremolo picking, death metal growls can also be heard at times.
Some tracks also adding in stringed instruments and touches of folk music, back up shouts can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and as the album progresses a small amount of acoustic guitars are also added into the music. The m production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover fantasy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Suidakra and if you are a fan of melodic black, death and folk metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Life in Chains" "Faoladh" "Resurgence" and "A Shine For The Ages". 8 out of 10.
