As Sahar / Warkvlt - Split - Le666ion Of Nusantara - Reviewed At OccultBlackMetalZine ! Check it out here at this link:

This  is  a  review  of  a  split  album  between  Singapore/Malaysia's  As  Sahar  and  Indonesia's  Warkvlt  called  "Le666ion  Of  Nusantara '  which  will  be  released  on  February  28th  as  a  joint  effort  between  Vykroblast  Productions  and  Sadist  Records  and  we  will  start  off  the  review  with  As  Sahar  a  band  that  plays  an  eastern  style  of  black  metal.

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  the  sounds  of  horses  before  going  into  more  of  a  heavier  and  melodic  musical  direction.  Keyboards  can  also  be  heard  all  of  the  trackss  while  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  also  add  in  a   great  amount  of  blast  beats  and  the  vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams.  

  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  also  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  while  the  songs  also  add  in  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.  Spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  on  a  couple  of  tracks  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  also  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  as  well  as  the  tremolo  picking  also  giving  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling  when  they  are  utilized,  female  vocals  are  also  added  on  the  closing  song.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  and  the  lyrics  cover  Eastern  Mysticism  and  Magickal  Cult  Practices.

  In  my  opinion  As  Sahar  are  a  very  great  sounding  eastern  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Rawarontek"  and  "Manunggal  Ing  Rosso".

  Next  up  is  Warkvlt  a  band  that  plays  a  very  fast  and  aggressive  form  of  black  metal.

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  a  very  fast  and  raw  sound  which  also  utilizes  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats.  Vocals  are  mostly  grim  yet  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  along  with  some  melodies  also  being  added  into  some  of  the  guitar riffing  and  a  lot  of  the  music  is  also  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  mid  90's  era. 

 When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  also  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  along  with  the  songs  also  adding  in  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  as  well  as  all  of  the  musical  also  sticking  to  a  heavier  direction.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  the  dark  side  of  life,  darkness  and  evil  in  warfare.

  In  my  opinion  Warkvlt  are  a  very  great  sounding  fast  and  aggressive  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Hellstorm  Comradeship"  :Kvrse".

  In  conclusion  I  feel  this  is  a  very  great  sounding  split  and  I  would  recommend  it  to  all  fans  of  Asian  black  metal.  8  out  of  10. - OccultBlackMetalZine

As Sahar started out as a thrash metal band during the golden era of 80’s. to be exact, 3 souls – Barchiel, Hanael & Uriel initiated the move for the band in December 1987 as they were moved by the intense & aggressive music. Early jam sessions were mostly covers of Venom, Metallica etc. End of 1993 recorded 1st ever promo & demo tape “Promo 93” & the “Primitively Eastern Winds” demo. Both releases were spread thru snail mail to fanzine & bands, receiving overwhelming & positive response motivated As Sahar to go further. 1995 “Santau” demo was recorded, creating our own identity – Eastern Black Metal, melodically & atmospheric combined with eastern mysticism & magical cult practices. This release caught the interest of Malaysian label Nebiula Production & release it on an EP tape format “Meditation Embun Pagi”. 

Warkvlt is a Black metal band, from Bandung Indonesia. The band was started on June, 2013 The name Warkvlt is taken from the Latin words "warocculti" which means secret war. Originally Warkvlt consisted of Abaddon: Vox, Bathory: Bass, Desecrator: Guitar, D'von: guitar and Blastphemy: drums and due to internal matters since 2017, Warkvlt changed the members to work on newmaterials. The concept of Warkvlt's music is heavily influenced by Marduk, Mayhem, DarkFuneral, Infernal War, Nordjevel and Impiety. Lyrical concept inspired by the dark side of life, darkness and evil in warfare.
