Dragobrath - And Mountains Openeth Eyes...

Band: Dragobrath
Album: And Mountains Openeth Eyes...
Year: 2008
Country: Ukraine
Genre: Pagan Black Metal

Dragobrath is a Black metal band from Ukraine with Pagan influences. Their style is a mixture of aggressive riffs, melodic black metal and some atmospheric/pagan metal. Their lyrical themes are Paganism, Nature and Carpathian Mythology.

The music is mainly traditional black metal, it is quite raw but with the fast and aggressive riffs Dragobrath manages to achieve a monumental and powerful atmosphere. The vocals are quite good, and varies a lot during the record, between classic growling to vocals inspired by bands such as Burzum, some parts even have clean vocals. The album is never boring, as it is a lot of variation and new atmospheric elements that are added during the album. The album is good, and I recommend it, it is not very original, but it is never boring and manages to do what others have tried and failed to do with style.
