Ronkade parved

This is the second full-length from this Estonian Black Metal, and the first I have heard from them. The band started in 2000 and have had a lot of line-up changes, but the band seems to be quite stable now. Bestia have released, besides the two full-lengths, for demos and one compilation. This is their latest release. The music on "Ronkade Parved" (not to be confused with the Swedish idiom "Runkad parad") is comprised of a lot of different parts. First of there is the most obvious, the harsh Black Metal with both faster blastbeat driven Black metal violence and slower, colder Black metal gloom. There is also a decent amount of Death Metal in the music, even some Thrash Metal here and there. But overall this is a Black Metal record. But on top of everything there is a folk music layer that adds a pagan touch to the music. Also they are not afraid to be a bit experimental, flutes and the viola have been used in Black Metal but saxophone. A bit strange, but it sort of works. The bass is high up in the mix which is something that I like, it adds a lot of weight and brutality to the recording, and the vocals are varied which is also something taht i really like. This is a really good album, check it out if you are into pagan Black Metal or if want Black Metal with a saxophone.
