Iranian black metal band Zurvan release debut full length. The release is coming out on Satanath Records. Satanath Records has a knack of discovering great bands from even the most unexpected countries for metal in the world. This time around, they’ve unearthed a band from Iran, playing a form of black/death metal that leans towards the Scandinavian template but add their own flavour to the mix. ZURVAN have created a sublime blend of semi-melodic, DISSECTION-meets-BOLZER kind of sound which it infuses with riffing that is distinctly Eastern-sounding. They’re on their way to forming their own identifiable sound but even as of now, their music is a breath of fresh air and holds immense promise, especially for a band from a place like Iran. Like AZOOMA, they’re likely to leave a mark in the genre.
