Shylmagoghnar play black metal of the nature-loving variety. Their new song, “As All Must Come To Pass,” is incredibly atmospheric, taking the long route to a powerful finish rather than flying out of the gate. Their greatest strength is the progressive melodies, inspired by melodic death metal guitar playing, that live beneath the walls of atmosphere, blast beats and screams. It gives Shylmagoghnar’s music a captivating edge, one heard throughout new album Transience.
Transience is out June 29 on Napalm.
