Arallu – En Olam (Album Review)

Arallu - En Olam

Arallu’s most recent release En Olam is like a book from another culture. Intriguing, captivating and an interesting blend of cultures. There’s an interesting element of fascination to each melody, each bongo drum hit and every additional instrument that takes this release from a standard death metal release to an interesting exploration of middle-eastern flavour and the extremity of Europe and the West. Thankfully, very little is lost in translation. The drums are played with extreme push and passion which is rare in this world of polished metal music. The guitars go from the precision of clean tones to the almost sandpaper-like distorted crunch. It hits a sweet spot in my book, but I can see some people struggling with its early influence. Vocally, there is a sense of urgency and character of which I’m a fan.

Being relatively new to the Eastern-metal side of things, I have to say this release, along with the Tamerian Empire’s Age of Ascendancy, has started to give me a bit of a thirst for it. The best word that I can use to describe it is simply ‘stirring’.

I’m keen to see where else this style of metal might go. The production of this release might not be to the standard of some of the metal snobs that I might know, but I urge you to look past this and find the diamond in the rough. Suitable for those who read and are curious about the hot desert sun, but have never experienced it.
