Hromovlad / Slavigrom – Perperuna (split CD)
Two Slavic pagan black metal bands unite. Hromovlad plays folky black metal not unlike Temnozor, including good melancholic flute melodies and clean vocals. I was not familiar with this band but it’s a very pleasant surprise – they manage to have plenty of folk influences in their music without sounding happy. Slavigrom is less folky, more straight forward black metal, perhaps reminding a bit of old Inferno.
