Ukronakh are a band from Ukraine that plays a very atmospheric and blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2021 album "Stonewounds" which was released as a joint effort between Grimm Distribution, Krista, End Of Time Records and Kuyen Productions.
Rain sounds start off the album before going into a heavier musical musical direction while a great portion of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing along with the solos and leads also being done in a very dark yet melodic style.
Vocals are mostly death metal growls while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them. When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast b eats can be heard along with some black metal screams also being utilized at times and some songs also add in a small amount of clean playing.
The music also has its atmospheric moments along with some tremolo picking also being added into some of the faster riffing as well as the songs also bringing in a more modern style. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Ukrainian and cover the spirits of antiquity who wander the forest paths of the Carpathians in oblivion and find no rest.
In my opinion Ukronakh are a very great sounding atmospheric blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "As Shadows Wander" "Breath Of Black Sky" and "He Was Painting By The Highland". 8 out of 10.
