All in all, Isotheos is a great contribution to black metal’s sound from a relatively obscure band. The catchiness of the riffs, the harmonic vocal chants reminiscent of Viking-era Bathory, and the ambience of the flute and keyboards all come together in quite the interesting formula. I know that “fun” isn’t exactly the term one would use to describe black metal, but the music Kawir create on Isotheos truly is, and it’s really not that difficult to picture a large Greek phalanx indulging in celebratory goblets of wine and other ecstasies after a huge battle victory while listening to it. Warm, epic, and inviting, with a splash of originality: that’s the atmosphere the music on this album creates. So what are you waiting for? Go check it out. Zeus will never forgive you if you don’t.
