Just like in case with Diaokhi, the discovery of this band was a positive surprise for me. So far I knew only of two Armenian metal bands (not counting bands with diaspora Armenians in their lineup): Blood Covenant (Christian metal) and Rahvira (NSBM). Even though their music isn't that bad, both of these bands are quite far from me ideologically, that's why I was happy to find out about another Armenian band which played metal since the mid-2000s (!). AFAIK, they were playing atmospheric black metal on their first demos, but this LP features progressive/symphonic metal with only some black metal overtones. In may 2010 they've changed their name to "Sacrond", as there already was a Norwegian black metal band using the name "Sworn".
