Shataan- War Cry

Shataan is a Blackened band from California, part of the Black Twilight Circle. I added the category Blackened for this band because they are defiantly black metal influenced, but defiantly not black metal, or metal really. Which is why I am so fond of the Black Twilight Circle collective, they are producing new material with a new sound that is not a simple rehashing of old material.
Although Encyclopedia Metallum does list them, and as Black Metal, Shataan starts this album with a flute solo, grainy rainy background noise and goes on exploring territories that fall into depressive, folk, pagan, metal and screamo categories. It covers all that ground with an almost mystic twist that seems to be the Black Twilight Circle’s trademark sound, which sounds good and goes well because their albums are all cassette-only.
