Legio Mortis/The Human Creation And the Devil's Contribution/Massacre Records/2011 CD Review


Legio Mortis are a band from Germany that plays a very atmospheric form of dark/black metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "The Human Creation And the Devil's Contribution" which was released by Massacre Records.


Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with a great amount of blast beats being thrown in at times, while the synths have a very dark and atmospheric sound to them, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast black metal riffs that are also very heavily influenced by death, doom and thrash metal with a great amount of melodic riffing being thrown in at times, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding heavy metal guitar solos.

Vocals are a mixture of deep death metal growls and high pitched black metal screams with some ocassional clean singing female vocals, while the lyrics cover Satanism, depressing themes and murder, as for the production it has a very dark, professional and heavy sound to it.

In my opinion Legio Mortis are a very good dark/black metal band and if you are a fan of this styles, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unholy Four" "Pity The Sadness" which is a Paradise Lost cover "Blood Fantasy" and "Thorn In My Eye". RECEMMONDED BUY.
