Sammath Naur biography
SAMMATH NAUR is an experimental black/death metal act from Poland. The band formed in 1999 and released their debut full-length studio album Self-Proclaimed Existence in 2005. The The Anhedony Domain EP followed in 2009.

SAMMATH NAUR' name is derived from TOLKIEN's Lord of the Rings and refers to the chambers of fire in Sauron's temple of doom. A sure indication of their sound, which is similar to BEHEMOTH, but with more technical riffing, death metal brutality and avant/prog elements.

Review by UMUR

— First review of this album —
3 stars "The Anhedony Domain" is the 2nd official release by Polish black/death metal act Sammath Naur. It's a 4 track, 17:04 minutes long EP released independently by the band in May 2009. Sammath Naur was formed in 1999 and released their debut full-length studio album "Self-Proclaimed Existence" in 2005.

The music on three of the tracks on the EP is symphonic black metal with melodic death metal elements. The track "Pyrrhic Beat" is a short ambient synth track. The songwriting is intriguing but not exactly original. The lack of originality is compensated for with the strong musicianship and the well sounding production and overall "The Anhedony Domain" is a quality release by Sammath Naur. The omnipresence of orchestrated synths provide the band's sound with an epic quality, but the music is actually quite dynamic and there are more raw stripped down parts on the EP too. The vocals vary between raspy black metal type vocals and deeper death metal growling.

So despite the fact that Sammath Naur don't bring much new to the table, "The Anhedony Domain" is still a worthwhile release and a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

Self-Proclaimed Existence
Sammath Naur Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by UMUR

3 stars "Self-Proclaimed Existence" is the debut full-length studio album by Polish black/death metal act Sammath Naur. The album was released through Empire Records in December 2005. Formed in the town of Bydgoszcz in 1999, the band have released a couple of demos before releasing this debut album.

The music on the album is black/death metal with both progressive and symphonic leanings. The music style is actually hard to pin down as Sammath Naur is quite the adventurous act. They include a lot of different genre elements in their music. The vocals are both growling and black metal raspy and the music can be both brutal and more sophisticated. Keyboards are prominant in the bandīs sound but the music is only occasionally symphonic. The sound production is a bit murky and itīs especially hard to hear whatīs going on during blast beat sections. Thereīs atmosphere here though and therefore the issue with the sound production isnīt a major one.

The band are really well playing in addition to writing some intriguing music so thatīs also a positive and overall Iīd say "Self-Proclaimed Existence" is a very promising debut album by Sammath Naur. There is room for improvement but the album is perfectly enjoyable as it is and a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

Thanks to CCVP for the artist addition.
