    Gra - Ramsvarta Tankar
    Released by: Carnal Records
    Released on: March 24h, 2017.
    Purchase From Amazon

    Gra, mostly consisting of current/previous members from Dark Funeral and Cursed 13, is a black metal band hailing from Sweden. On this single we have Heljarmadr on vocals, Dimman on drums, Maugrim on guitars, Natt on guitars, and Vediger on bass offering us a solid dose of melodic black metal.

    The title track, Ramsvarta Tankar, has a less intense atmosphere than band's last album, Ending (a very good release), which by no means is a bad thing. There are still clearly recognizable aspects, like the riffing and the vocals, however, the production places a greater emphasis on bass this time around which cuts some of the sharpness of the guitar tone. The song has a similar structure to He Who Comes (from Ending), but there is still enough variety to have its own identity.

    The second track is a cover of Lord Belial's Osculum Obscenum, which is faithful to the original, though it does take artistic license at the end of the track. I will leave it at that for you to check it out and understand what I mean.

    Overall, the single is satisfying, but not spectacular. If you are a fan of Dark Funeral or Dissection, you might dig this.
