Combining elements of melodic death and black metal, and presenting in grand, progressive compositions, Shylmagoghnar are an exciting and fascinating band.
In only two albums, they have created a complex and thrilling sound. Harsh vocals, big riffs, beautiful keys, and an amazing atmosphere are all used to brilliant effect. The songs are multi-passages opuses, yet never outstay their welcome for feel like retreads of the same material.
There is something to be found in Shylmagoghnar for fans of many different subgenres of metal, all perfectly presented in an amazing musical package. It’s hard to believe this is the work of just two people.
