Ren Marabou - ‘Valhalla Waits’ - Reviewed By A DIFFERENT SHADE OF BLACK METAL ZINE ! Check it out here at this link: https://darkdoomgrinddeath.blogspot.com/2021/04/ren-marabouvalhalla-waitsmisanthropik.html

Ren  Marabou  is  a  solo  artist  from  Ireland  that  plays  a  melodic  mixture  of  Viking,  black  and  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2021  album  "Valhalla  Waits"  which  will  be  released  in  May  by  Misanthropik  Records.

  Dark  soundscapes  and  clean  playing  start  off  the  album  before  going  into  more  of  a  heavier  and  symphonic  musical  direction.  The  riffs  also  add  in  a  great  amount  of  melody  while  the  vocals  also  bring  in  a  mixture  of  aggressive  shouts  and  clean  pagan  vocals  and  spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  at  times.

  The  riffs  also  bring  in  the  heaviness  of  the  more  melodic  style  of  black  and  death  metal  at  times  while  battle  chants  can  also  heard  in  some  parts  of  the  music.  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  also  add  in  a  great  amount  of  melody  along  with  some  tracks  also  adding  in  a  small  amount  of  clean  playing.

The  music  also  mixing  in  influences  from  more  mainstream  styles  of  metal  as  well  as  some    acoustic  guitars  also  being  utilized  briefly  on  a  couple  of  songs  as  well  as  a  later  track  also  introducing  folk  music  elements  onto  the  album  and  all  of  the  music  sticks  to  either  a  slow  or  mid  tempo  direction.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  Norse  Mythology  and  Pagan  Folklore  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Ren  Marabou  is  a  very  decent  sounding  melodic  mixture  of  Viking,  black  and  death  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  solo  project.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Guide  Me  To  Asgard"  "Prophecy  Of  the  Seer"  "Yggdrasil"  and  "Champion  Of  Midgard".  7/5  out  of  10.  - A DIFFERENT SHADE OF BLACK METAL ZINE
