The notorious legacy of Vlad the Impaler has remained as one of the most explored theme among black metal, which makes it rather intriguing when a band from the Far East incorporates His Tyranny into their music. With their latest opus Transylvanian Moonrise, Sintala Rána aims to recreate medieval darkness through their brilliant execution of operatic blasphemy. Based in Beijing, China, this two-men project took their name from J.R.R.Tolkien's middle-earth fantasy (meaning Moon Eclipse in Quenya). As loyal followers of legends like Emperor and Anorexia Nervosa, Sintala Rána offers a magnificent display of symphonic black metal while adding a rather modern approach through their debut full length Transylvanian Moonrise: an album consists of shredding tremelo melodies and majestic orchestral arrangements, with epic choirs and sinister narratives intersected in-between, Sintala Rána manages to conjure both violence and romance of Vlad's bloody reign and misty Carpathian. This October, Pest Productions will release this gem in physical formats, do not hesitate to take this journey back to dark medieval age!
Vlad the Impaler的罪恶历史早已成为黑金属最常见的题材之一，因此不免让人好奇一支来自远东的乐队如何在音乐中描绘这位暴君的罪行。在他们的最新杰作Transylvania Moonrise中，Sintala Rána月蚀意图通过他们颇为戏剧化的亵渎之声重现黑暗的中世纪历史。根据于中国北京，月蚀的命名灵感来源于托尔金中土世界的昆雅语。作为像Emperor和Anorexia Nervosa等传奇的忠实拥簇，月蚀的音乐可以说是更为华丽且摩登化的交响黑金属。他们的首张全长Transylvanian Moonrise充斥着旋律感十足的高速轮拨和气势恢弘的管弦编配，穿插唱诗班的史诗咏叹与邪恶的人声念白，讲述着弗拉德大帝的血腥统治和迷雾笼罩的喀尔巴阡山脉那残酷又浪漫的历史。今年十月中旬瘟疫唱片将以2CD限量版和普通版发行这张杰作，届时听众即可同月蚀一道领略其阴暗的中世纪之旅。

Bottom line...Magoth are a real black metal band (unlike TOO many others claiming to be). Dark, evil, deep, moving and bad ass! If you call yourself a black metal fan but don’t like Magoth you’re a Fuckin liar and a poser. Buy this album! You won’t regret it🤘🏼 Verwirrt
