VIETAH – Czornaja Cvil review



 VIETAH – Czornaja Cvil
Stygian Crypt Productions / Possession Productions
“Czornaja Cvil” is VIETAH’s fourth studio release coming only a year after “Tajemstvy Noczy” proving that the mastermind behind this group is a prolific songwriter that intensifies his pace after a four year gap between his sophomore and third work.
Now, for those who don’t know much about this band let me clear out that it’s a one man band, it’s the sole vision of Antarctis, who composes and orchestrates the songs, while he also plays all the instruments and does the vocals. The band belongs to what we call atmospheric black metal and its sound encompasses all we know relevant to this sound. This means that the atmosphere is dark and gloomy, the guitars are heavy and thick, depression and sadness are vibrating within every note and the vocals do their best to enhance the coldness, bitterness and melancholy of the songs, while at the same time enriching the extremity and aggressive touch of the compositions. “Czornaja Cvil” is a generic atmospheric black metal release which makes it ideal for the fans of the genre and for those who want to get immersed in a blackened and bleak atmosphere. It definitely won’t disappoint those who are looking for sounds to accompany them during the cold, dark winter days…
