From The Vastland
August 2013
Released: 2013, Indie Recordings Release
Rating: 4.5/5
Reviewer: UK Team

Black metal from Iran! Not just black metal; great black metal! Not too much trying to sound as evil as Sauron whilst screaming Gollum vocals into a blackened microphone; More emphasis on the fast and fucking heavy, which is what I like. Impressively, all instruments were masterfully written and recorded by your man Sina.

I can’t imagine that there is an abundance of black metal musicians chilling out in Iran, but at least there is one who can do it all and thus bring you this Norwegian style cacophony (with extra added Persian mythology.) Tastefully short breaks in the intensity only serve to slam the music back into you when the twisting, winding, interlacing drums and guitars are unleashed once again.

From The Vastland clearly knows their stuff.

Not detract from things I felt as though not too much genre-bending went on within, but without there is a highly proficient, well thought out and heavy as fuck BM album. All by a man in Iran who is clearly hell-bent on desecrating your eardrums with his excellent take on some truly classic black metal. Recommended for any fan of this genre.
