SVABHAVAT – Black Mirror Reflection, LP
Deluxe gatefold vinyl edition, hand-numbered to 250 copies.
Svabhavat are a brand-new entity hailing from the Pacific Northwest. A duo, they describe their music as "Ritualistic Necromancy Black Metal," and indeed is that demi-tag apt: across the band's Black Mirror Reflection debut, one will find the refreshingly old stench of archetypal Darkthrone, Mayhem, and especially Katharsis. No elegiac odes to the Cascadians or sun-drenched bliss masquerading as "black metal" here; Svabhavat offer nothing but cold 'n' cruel intensity, violently at odds with their region's reigning paradigm.
