Lava Invocator – Mörk (Black Metal)

a2502046237_10

Lava Invocator’s history is a funny one for me. They are a Ukrainian band but got together in a town close to where I live, Lund in Sweden, due to being influenced by the forests, mysticism and darkness that can surround Sweden at times. The duo Ingvaar (guitars and vocals) and Silent (bass) have been working alongside each other for a while, as they also play for Def/Light. Joining them is Yggr on drums to complete the formation of black arts two years ago. Mörk (Swedish word for “dark”) is the bands first album.

What kind of music does Lava Invocator play then? It’s traditional black metal heavy influenced from the 90’s era. It’s raw high pitched black metal vocals together with tempo-changes between melodic riffs and aggressive blast beats. Just as you remember icons such as Dissection, Dark Funeral and Darkthrone spreading their malicious ferocity doing it for many years. They even got acoustic and synth elements which is a nice extra touch and doesn’t feel forced in.

There are some high and lows on this album, but it’s good old black metal that you know what to expect from it. If you can never get enough of black metal then you can’t go wrong with Lava Invocator, they pull off a solid debut album. Mörk by Lava Invocator is out now through Satanath Records.
