𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Deploying of excellent crystal clear & sharp (dark & aggressive) melodic & heavy riffs, with dark heavy bass riffs

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Meaningful Beauty & Beast of deep male growls & clean operatic female vocals

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Dense, heavy drum patterns & beats/programmed drums

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Embrace yourself, with something dark but beautiful, this is Ulvånd, a trio band, that captures something unique within their music


With only six songs, playtime of just over the thirty-minute mark, the first track, captures the heart straight away, with this beautiful, but emotional (symphonic) opening, then Serge opens the song, like a wolf at the door of low-deep growls (reminiscent of something from the Crematory album & song 'Revolution'), then the opening song starts building up a climax of heaviness, it's when Bérangère enters halfway through, with her alluring voice, this is when album wakes up, to its true dark picturesque of harsh electro soundscape music of Liden along with other elements of Symphonic metal, Gothic metal, industrial metal, dark metal, death metal that features programmed drums, classical landscapes (cellos, violins, organs) creating a sound of powerful, melancholic & dark atmospheric (modern) sound & music

If you like the work & sound of Crematory, Septicflesh & Lacuna Coil with a unique sound of their own, this is for you, Ulvånd is a wolf of its own


*worth the attention and a listen* *dark, poetic & romantic*

* entertaining* *real spiritual masterpiece*
