Dinosaur Egg Hoarder Really terrific incorporation of traditional instruments into epic black metal structures; the effect is a cinematic feel, a bigger picture. Absolutely worth checking out.

Atmospheric Black Metal Cat Truth be told, walking into this knowing only "Iranian Black Metal" at the outset, I was expecting mildly interesting at best and totally laughable at worst. I could not have been more incorrect expectation wise. Totally blown away by this . Two tracks of refreshingly original black metal with solid musicianship and great black metal vocals . The traditional instruments are masterfully added , and don't seem like an addition, but necessary. Always a fan of under the radar , off the beaten path solo black metal artists and Akvan checks all of those boxes...and then some. Favorite track: شاه شاهان‎.

Mehtul Great stuff, I consider this black folk metal; the inclusion of local instruments like the tar make this an incredible add to anyone's collection. Favorite track: شاه شاهان‎.

Track Name: میراث
Baga weeps
As Rostam wept
At the sight
Of Sohrab's death

Anahid mourns
An empire in decay
Bereft of Atar's fire

Sons of مغ
Knights of fire
Defy defeat
Immortal, our legacy

O! Indar!
I summon thee
Heed my call
Guide my blade
Through the serpent's heart

O! Verethragna!
Extirpate the kin of Merdas,
Pawns of the Western beasts
Butcher his backward tribe
Relieve the Land of Aryans
Of their filthy book of lies
Track Name: شاه شاهان‎
O father, aryan shah
Blessed by Mazda is thy name

Apotheosis ov Iran
کوروش، شاه شاهان
Arise from thy slumber
Deliver us reprieve

From the cancer
That plagues thy lands
Decimate the lie
Which drives thine
Empire to rot

By virtue ov Mitra
Extricate thine nation
Bestow upon us
Wisdom and strength
Towards reclamation, truth, and majesty
Return us to forgotten glory
Lead us in war
Incinerate those led astray
Who submit to druj
And follow Afrasiyab
Annihilate Hanakana
Ignite Adar Gushasp

Rivers ov blood
Flow from the corpse
Ov Zahhak, ophidian filth
In the pit ov Drûgâskan
Blindness, eternal
Awaits those who defy
Thine eminence supreme
Darkness, vanquished through
Flame ov Ormazd’s fire

Hymns ov the Gathas
Summon Vohu Manah
Illuminate the path to Asha
