Though Brazil's Kaatayra has released four genre defying black metal releases in the past two years, two of them just this year, it is Só quem viu o relâmpago à sua direita sabe that stuck with me most, mostly because it was both the first one I listened to and the one that shook things up the most. Completely defying metal's longest held rule: it must have electric guitars; Só quem viu o relâmpago à sua direita sabe instead sometimes sounds like Botanist lite or like atmospheric black metal with acoustic instruments instead of electric ones, but the Brazilian folk embeddings and their layering makes it sound like more than just its gimmick, showcasing great skill and ambition for a one-man band that successfully made black metal sound natural. Though if you miss the electric guitars, you can hear them in the other album they've released since: Toda história pela frente.

I'll have to see whether the album from this year with guitars manages to translate the magic this album has, cos this sounds damn good; it could've been gimmicky doing black metal with only acoustic guitars, but the folk instruments and percussion weaved in make it work really nicely

Not sure what to make of it as the resemblance to Botanist (especially live) is clear. It has moments of clarity on some occasions but I'm sure it's got the type of style to start blowing up before it becomes like another death metal trend and liked for the many as with most recs. A higher end speculation I know. To think I was going in expecting Volahn.
