Machine Head The quiet parts are very organic and contrast well with the unrelenting black metal sections. Recommended Favorite track: A Seventh Age of Fire.

akerblogger A fantastical mix of symphonic black metal and folky-noodlings. Dreamlike and warming at times, harsh and unforgiving at others. It's loose and vibrant with charm and wonder in abundance.

Skyrim Guard The songwriting and the use of acoustic guitar is excellent in this album. The growls are unique, the relentless drumming is, umh... relentless and the female vocals are great. Not your average nature-loving black metal. Favorite track: The Wolves Fell Quiet.

Martin King Only heard "the wolves fell quiet" as this is on pre-order but this is superb, great song structure, tortuously good vocals. Can't wait for the test of the album to be released Favorite track: The Wolves Fell Quiet.

Angelo Melis Just briljant. Love all songs, but especially Halle Ravine. So much emotion... Favorite track: Halle Ravine.

about

Dzö-nga (zone-gah) is a black metal project formed in 2016 by multi-instrumentalist Cryvas. The band draws inspiration from world mythologies in creating genre-blending epics, imbuing a Cascadian black metal sound with classical music flair. Debut album Five Treasures of Snow explored the far reaches of ambient metal, with “simultaneously claustrophobic and unforgivingly exposing” songs about an otherworldly Himalayan ascent. 2017’s Upon the Shimmered Bough, a 15-minute art piece based on an original poem, introduced folk elements to the project in anticipation of what is surely Dzö-nga’s coming-of-age work. The Sachem’s Tales arrives as a concept album about Algonquin folklore, from creation mythos (“Against the Northern Wind”) to apocalyptic prophesies (“A Seventh Age of Fire.”)
