Since their inception in 2010, Grá has relentlessly worked to shape their music to be both a perfect example of Swedish black metal and a very personal interpretation of its classic sound. Lycaon is band's fourth full length album and ever since the band started in 2010, they have been striving for constant evolution, to challenge themselves as musicians and composers with every release. Where the last album Väsen was extremely intricate and bombastic, with an "all in" approach to keyboards, orchestral parts, acoustic guitars and choir arrangements, Lycaon is heading in the opposite direction. It has fewer layers and with that, every layer needs to be meticulously measured and well thought out to carry the right atmosphere forward. Another great album from a band with a lot of talent. Black metal with tons of riffs and melodies you can head bang along to.
