Zaul Mos is the fourth album from Transylvanian pagan black metal band Syn Ze Sase Tri. Mixing folk elements with a traditional sound the album is out on September 29th via Code666.
Syn Ze Sase Tri don’t mess around beginning with the 10+ minute long Tarimu’ de Lumina. Instantly the sense of grandness that exists throughout the album comes out to play. Brutal blackened metal riffs & vocals alongside emotionally draining melody, there is a clear intention to surprise & inspire.
Underlayed with darkness straight from the most hellish corner of the world, the booming spoken word & haunting background melody flows into a more traditional heavy metal sound. It’s a very unique & special opener.
Any concern that Syn Ze Sase Tri may have played their best hand already is dismissed with the riff & classic sounding melody of Din Negru Gind. Here, it’s less about being fancy & more about blasting out a track filled with wonderful intensity & beauty.
Those two words, intensity & beauty is the perfect summation of the entire album. Solu’ Zeilor ploughs along ripping up the earth as it blasts out a horn-throwing guitar solo, the battle ready title track off-kilter mid-point vocals really surprise before the added mix of female vocals on Plecaciune Zaului absolutely soars.
Had Zaul Mos ended after 7 tracks it would have easily been a 9/10 album but it doesn’t. Instead it goes a little bit longer & seemingly impossibly turns into one of the best albums of the entire year thanks to the shockingly good Cocosil Negri. A contender for one the best tracks of the year. The sublime folk melody, the gob-smackingly good chanting vocals, the stunning riffs, the gut-rumbling drums…if you need to know just how good Syn Ze Sase Tri are, this is the song you must listen too.
