Jarun are a band from Poland that plays a mixture of progressive, folk and black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Sporysz" which will b e released in December by Arachnophobia Records.
Powerful sounding bass guitars along with some drum beats start off the album while the acoustic guitars bring in elements of progressive and folk music and after awhile the music gets very heavier and also introduces deep death metal growls and high pitched black metal screams onto the recording.
Clean vocals can also be heard at times while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a decent amount of blast beats along with most of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as a brief use of melodic chants and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and saxophones are also used briefly on the closing track.
Jarun plays a musical style that takes folk music and mixes it with progressive black metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Polish and cover death, madness, humans, nature and the transformation of seasons.
In my opinion Jarun are a very great sounding mixture of folk and progressive black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Powidoki" and "Malowany Ogien". 8 out of 10.
