Myronath - Djevelkraft - Reviewed By Occult Black Metal Zine ! Check it out here at this link: http://occultblackmetalzine.blogspot.com/2021/05/myronathdjevelkrafthellstain.html
Myronath are a band from Sweden that has been featured before in this zine and plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of their 2021 album "Djecelkraft" which will be released in June by Hellstain Productions.
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the album while the faster sections of the songs also add in a great amount of blast beats. When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the music more of a raw feeling while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams and the music is also heavily rooted in the Swedish style.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while growls are also utilized at times. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with some ritualistic and melodic chants also being added into the music briefly.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style along with a couple of the tracks also adding in a brief use of classical guitars and clean playing and a couple of the songs are also long and epic in length, as the album progresses a brief use of throat singing can also be heard. as well as a later track also adding in a brief use of synths. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferian, Occult Practices and Veneration Of Death themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Myronath and if you are a fan of Swedish and occult black metal, you should check out this album.

Here are some words from the band about “Djevelkraft” from an upcoming interview in Metalized Magazine Denmark: “We are all very satisfied with the final result. The sound is exactly as we imagined! Kudos to Devo Andersson (ex Marduk) at Endarker Studio for his work on this one! He is a very talented person and his experience in Black Metal really shows, and immediately understood what we needed. Musicwise, all songs offer different emotions and we hope that these emotions will also reach our listeners the way we intended!" - Hellcommander Vargblod

Myronath started out as a side project of Hellcommander Vargblod (H.V), sole member of Khaospath and Draugûl – together with Bjarkan who also plays in various other bands; Ragnarok, Throne of Heresy, Kala, Blood of Serpents amongst others.
The band took a quick turn to be a serious one and the two members started writing material directly for their first release. H.V (bass and vocals) and Bjarkan (guitars) were shortly after joined by none other than Lars Broddesson on session studio and live drums, who people certainly know from Marduk. Then Myrkheim (from Serpesta) joined as a live session guitarist for Myronath.
In late spring 2019 Myronath entered the studio and recorded their first full length “Into the Qliphoth”. It consists of 8 tracks solely dedicated and in veneration to the members’ creed and practices. The album was mixed by Lars Broddesson at Twisting Serpent Studios, and was later mastered by Devo Andersson (ex-Marduk) at Endarker Studio, Sweden.
Summer 2019 Myronath signed with Dutch record label Non Serviam Records for one album, and “Into the Qliphoth” was released early September 2019. This was during the band’s very first live performance at the “Mörkaste Småland Festival” in Hultsfred, Sweden – alongside bands such as Gra and Svartidaudi.
December 2019 saw Myronath playing live again at the December Darkness festival, alongside Marduk, Avslut and others.
Due to personal reasons Lars Broddesson could unfortunately not continue as drummer of Myronath at this point, but without delay the band recruited none other than Fredrik Andersson (ex-Amon Amarth, Netherbird) to replace Lars behind the battery.
Myrkheim was by now also a full member of the band, and Myronath started working with new material for the band’s second release. The album was recorded at Endarker Studio autumn 2020 under the hands of Devo Andersson (ex-Marduk).
Myronath was now looking for new partnership to release their second album and develop the band further. Early 2021 they inked a deal with Hellstain Productions, and together they soon after released “Effigy of Malediction” as the first single from the upcoming album, together with an official video for the song.
The second album is entitled “Djevelkraft” and is set for release 4th of June 2021 on CD and Gatefold double vinyl together with official merchandise. The second single “Evigt Mörker” is also out now, including a lyric video.
