Vientos arcaicos is the debut full-length from Spain's Calyx and it is an album full of dark and evil black metal. It has a melodic streak running through its more typical black metal songwriting and while that doesn't separate what Calyx are doing from the masses very much, the vocals do. They sound like a lot of other black rasps, but you can clearly make out the Spanish lyrics and I have to say they sound even more hellish in that language. Michel, who runs this site, and I both agree that Spanish-sung lyrics sound better delivered in a harsh vocal style and Calyx are a band I would put forth as proof. It is cool to hear a band come up with something a little different without losing the heart of a particular style, even if it is just singing in their native tongue.
