Verilun – Through fire…in the Sun (review)
Verilun is a death/black metal band from Hungary. They released their second album, “Through fire…in the Sun” in May 2018 via Sliptrick Records, five years after their debut album. Despite the fact that I am not a huge fan of this genre, this album is quite different. Let’s see why.
Even from the first song, which is actually my favorite of the album, you can understand that Verilun are fans of the epic. Their music may be death and black, but has an epic element, like the Amon Amarth songs. They are very melodic and that’s why you can relax by listening to them, or at some other parts, you can headbang or mosh like it’s the end of the world. They remind me some times the Swedish melodic death metal scene, with a more black metal approach, especially on the vocals. Another advantage of their music is the groove. They may play an old school type of music, but they have a modern approach. No, they are not plastic. In my own point of view, their melodies and the keyboards or the choirs they add on some parts make them more epic and that’s why I really enjoy listening to them. The only thing I didn’t like so much is that they have quite long tracks. At some points I felt like I wanted the song to end a couple of minutes before. It would be easier for the listener, especially on this genre which is extreme, to listen to tracks that are five minutes long.
To sum up, I have really enjoyed Verilun’s album and I believe that you should check them out!
