BLAND VARGAR play 'epic raw black metal', a description that we once battled to understand but came to accept after numerous digestions of Perpetual Return, their second recording and first full-length.
BLAND VARGAR hail from Bologna, Italy and their music expertly balances the rage and desperation of the purest forms of hysterical black metal and the soulfulness of the purest folk. Perpetual Return includes five cuts and expertly delivers over 40 minutes of some of the most perfectly crafted black metal of 2014.
A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
