Mystherium are a band from Poland that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording plays a gothic and pagan form of black metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Zemsta Natury (Revenge Of Nature)" which will be released on March 20th as a joint effort between War Productions and Werewolf Promotion.
A very dark, heavy and epic sounding intro starts off the album while also introducing synths, spoken word parts and whispers onto the recording while the heavier riffs also bring in a great amount of melody. Most of the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's era and the vocals are done in mostly a grim black metal style.
The synths also gives the music more of an epic and gothic atmosphere while blast beats and tremolo picking can also be heard when the music speeds up. Touches of classical music can also be heard in some parts of the recording as well as the songs also adding in a great amount of pagan metal elements and most of the album sticks to either a slow or mid tempo style, stringed instruments can also be heard briefly.
On this recording Mystherium plays a musical style that goes back to the 90's era of gothic and pagan black metal. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics are written in Polish and cover Nature and Paganism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Mystherium and if you are a fan of gothic and pagan black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ancestor's Beliefs (Wiara Prozodkow)" and "Crows And Ravens (Kruki i Wrony)". 8 out of 10.
