Arvas - VI - Reviewed By OccultBlackMetalZine ! Check it out here at this link:

Arvas  are  a  band  from  Norway  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  on  this  recording  goes  for  more  of  an  old  school  style  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2021  album  "VI"  which  was  released  by  Whispering  Voice  Records.

  A  very  dark  yet  heavy  death  metal  influenced  style  starts  off  the  album  while  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  also  add  in  a  decent  amount  of  blast  beats.  All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  the  solos  and  leads  also  add  in  a  decent  amount  of  dark  yet  old  school  sounding  melodies.

  A  lot  of  the  music  is  also  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  90's  era  while  the  vocals  are  mostly  grim  yet  high  pitched  sounding  black  metal  screams.  When  tremolo  picking  is  utilized  it  also  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling  along  with  the  songs  also  adding  in  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.

  Melodies  are  also  added  into  some  of  the  guitar  riffing  along  with  a  couple  of  songs  also  adding  in  a  brief  use  of  horror  movie  style  synths  as  well  as  some  of  the  riffing  also  showing  an  i influence  of  thrash  metal  and  as  the  album  progresses  a  brief  use  of  whispers  can  also  be  heard.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover occultism,  darkness  and  death  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  album  from  Arvas  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  old  school  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Alone  In  Torment"  "The  Empress  And  The  Shadow  Stone"  "Endless  Aeons  And  Cosmic  Supremacy"  and  "Despicable  Truth".  8  out  of  10. - OccultBlackMetalZine

Whispering Voice Records is proudly presenting yet another release. This time from the Norwegian black metal heavy hitters, Arvas.
The band is releasing their sixth full-length album, entitled VI, which consist of 12 hard-hitting songs, including the singel ‘Silent Night’, released in November 2020.
Since the release of Equanimity in 2019, the band has been working hard on material for a new album, and the result of that work has been put into VI.

And this album is the hardest hitting album the band has made in their career… so far.

Since releasing the singel ‘Silent Night’ last year, critics has described the music for the new album as being ‘Svartere enn Helvette’ (Blacker than Hell).

The band promised something harder than they’ve ever done by the band before… and they were true to their word.
