Istidraj are a band from Singapore that plays a very raw and brutal form of Satanic war/black metal and this is a review of their 2007 album "Blasphemous Ritual" which was released by Satan's Millennium Records.
Drums are very fast with a lot of brutal blast beats that are also very heavy and skull crushing, while the bass playing sounds very dark with a lot of fast riffing.
Rhythm guitars are very fast, heavy and brutal war/black metal riffs that also utilize some melodies at times and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are all very high pitched black metal screams, while the lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferian, Black Magick and a little bit of Nietzsche philosophy, as for the production it is very heavy, brutal, dark and raw sounding.
In my opinion Istidraj are a very good raw and brutal satanic/war/black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bidarari Desekration" "The Burning Twilight" and "Morbid Blasphemic Cult". RECOMMENDED BUY.
