If you want a break from black metal dealing with Satanism, nihilism/misanthropism, the void in all its forms, Odin and Valhalla, frostbitten mountains and snow-covered forests, and all the other cliché themes associated with the genre, try out Kawir. And if murder-filled, revenge-fuelled and tragedy-stricken Greek mythology is not an apt theme for this type of music, I don't know what is.

I am not a gambler but I can bet some beers, wait maybe i can give a snow , Nikarg can take it.
I bet this will be his best 2020 album, and no doubt best home made album.

This band is awesome, band never creates same album, but new sound in old sound and its Kawir, its BM, but not same, this is why its so special. Band use greek themes, many araboic bands, s american sing about viking, this band never, all about home nation, ancient Greece, Hades and so on ,,,, aris god of brutal derby.

Anthemic, fun, and catchy while rocking solid riffs and melodies throughout. One of those "all killer, no filler" kind of releases. The hymn-esque chants aren't delivered awkwardly or repeated to the point of annoyance which isn't always the case with this style, so that's nice. The only major complaint I can make is about the production. The vocals don't sound properly leveled in the mix at times, and the guitars lack depth due to a lack of bass. It's a minor complaint, but it's distracting enough to kill my immersion.

They did that mistake on Πάτερ Ήλιε Μήτερ Σελάνα and it was not good. Luckily they didn't repeat it either on Exilasmos or on this one.

Ηymn-esque chants repeated to the point of annoyance. Πάτερ Ήλιε Μήτερ Σελάνα was way too long and repetitive for its own good.

Some great moments happening in this album but ultimately I just find it forgettable and the sound of the production really brings it down.
