Myronath - Djevelkraft - Reviewed By Full Metal Mayhem ! Check it out here at this link: https://lorenzvangore.wixsite.com/fullmetalmayhem/post/myronath-mit-djevelkraft
Release date: It will be released on June 4, 2021
Other releases of the band: This is their second album, from which they have released two singles.
How did I get to know the band: And again The Metal Devastation Radio offered me a piece of Scandinavian black metal. I rarely say no to something like this, so here comes the review.
How do I find the record: Not a bad album, so let's listen to it:
EVIL UNCHAINED starts quite darkly and melancholically before the song really picks up speed and the tenor changes. From melancholic n riffs to aggressive bumbling. The vocals do the rest, as they alternate here again and again between angry snarls and nasty croaks.
SHE WHO DWELLS IN FLAMES starts directly with hard loads, which only increases further than the vocals. Again and again the tempo is taken back in favor of the heavyness, but shortly afterwards the song starts again.
RADIX DIABOLI starts with a really bass, which together with the drums lays the foundation for my favorite on this album. Here I can really get lost in the song and revel in the hatred that has become black metal. The riffing does the rest, because it sounds varied and yet not like five songs in one.
EFFIGY OF MALEDICTION sounds partly old-school, but on the other hand also modern. Here they have found a great mixture of both styles, which many other bands miss.
TILL ASKA immediately starts pushing and adds a thrashing note to the band's music. Unfortunately, however, there is still something missing. The song is not bad, but only mediocrity. So if we move on to the next one.
THE SWORD OF SATAN is opened by an acoustic guitar playing a sombre melody. Shortly thereafter, an electric guitar is added, before the song eliminates the acoustic claps and kicks off with full force. Here everything is right again, that certain something is there and the song has settled directly in my brain.
EVIGT MÖRKER does not sound bad. The song goes directly to the works and also the quiet passages sound really good. Slightly unorthodox, but quite worth listening to.
TO WALK THE PATH OF DEATH starts quite gloomy, especially, the slightly washed-out guitars at the beginning give the whole thing a melancholic touch. This later turns View into an angry stomping track, which you can give yourself quite a time.
REBORN IN CHAOS is perhaps the most brutal song on the album. It just sounds big and destructive. But here, too, I'm missing something to record the song in one of my playlists.
IN REGNO TENEBRIS starts with psychotic guitars and an interesting drumming. After that, the song throttles, but the riff from the beginning is preserved. Here I am completely enthusiastic again and he is one of my favorites of the album.
BEYOND THE VEIL OF DEATH finishes the album quite quietly and with sea noise at the beginning. A melancholy instrumental that ends the album.
Conclusion: Can you listen and certainly something for one or the other Black Metal Head. I don't agree, but I'm not the measure of all things. - Full Metal Mayhem

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.
