Staff review by
Zgard is yet another one man black metal project, this one hailing from Ukraine. Reclusion is the second album released under this moniker and is dubbed both pagan and atmospheric black. Pagan stems from the artist's desire to showcase Ukrainian roots…

I'll just dub it midpaced melodic black metal drenched in synthesizers set on that "ice" setting. Not the cold chill of a harsh, biting wind… but the sort of sparkly, tingly sunlight reflecting off the ice sound. Vocals are pretty much the rasped standard for the genre. Beyond just the synths, occasionally other elements are tossed in to try and enhance the cold, including, well, my aforementioned wind.
