Sweden's Alfahanne have returned with a new recording which continues their mixture of black metal, punk, goth and classic rock from previous releases and this is a review of their 2019 album "Atomvinter" which was released by Indie Recordings.
Atmospheric sounding drones start off the album before going into a heavier direction which also introduces melodic sounding goth rock guitar leads onto the recording. The vocals are done in more of an aggressive screaming and shouting style while black metal screams are also utilized at times.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while clean singing can also be heard at times. Acoustic guitars can also be heard in some parts of the recording along with one track also introducing tragic sounding keyboards onto the album as well as the riffs also utilizing a great amount of melody.
At times the music also captures the raw aggression of punk rock along with some death metal growls also being utilized briefly. When acoustic guitars are added onto the album they give the music more of a 70's classic rock feeling but mixed in with a more modern sound and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid tempo direction. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in a mixture of Swedish and English and cover dark and apocalyptic themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Alfahanne and if you are a fan of black metal, punk, goth and classic rock, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Atomvinter" "A Place To Call Home (Arla Boggie)" "The Heavy Burden" and "En Tight Knut". 8 out of 10.
