Vanum – Legend LP
Vanum – 'Legend' LP
Black vinyl edition with insert & download code
New 2022 album of unyielding and grandiose Black Metal that traces a hellish through line from the power of mid-era Bathory, through the riff-craft of the Hellenic masters, to the bitter fury of the Slavic greats. But amidst the pantheon of familiar influences new touchstones become ever more apparent. With Legend, the continuum is charted further back and to new lands. Within the throes of the Black Metal maelstrom, echoes of classic heavy metal are increasingly recognizable, further bolstering Vanum‘s towering melodic sensibility and epic songwriting. Coupled with a deeper and expanded exploration and use of ambience and synthesizer, the album is imbued with a richness and sense of majesty that underpins each of its five towering compositions.
