REVIEW - FR/ENG - LYCANTHROPUS - SWEDISH BLACK METAL - 2019 MALTKROSS
Black Metal according to Lycanthropus is raven black, violent and tyrannical. Wrapped in the most vehement Scandinavian coldness, it is from its pedestal that the lycanthrope observes the miserable humanity. As soon as "Warwolf" the debate is settled: it is the war that counts us this wild wolf with its rare human reliefs. Focused on the tradition of the genre, Lycanthropus' Black Metal sometimes draws on its roots, brushing against rock'n' roll ("Rise" can testify to this) and giving itself a rhythmic versatility between blast-beats and more epic mid-tempo.
