Deathspell Omega/Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice/Ajna/2004 CD Review

Deathspell Omega are a band from France that plays a very brutal and raw from of black metal with avant garde tendencies and this is a review of their 2004 "Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice" which was released by Ajna.

Drums rage from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats, while the avant sounds bring a very dark, evil and ritualistic sound to the music, as for the bass playing it sounds very heavy and powerful with some brutal sounding riffing.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast raw black metal riffs that are also melodic at times, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are distorted sounding guitar leads that are melodic at times.

Vocals are mostly high pitched and grim sounding black metal screams and growls mixed in with some weird sounding church choir vocals that are used on certain songs and some cries of agony, while the lyrics cover Theistic Satanism, Metaphysics, Theology and Philosophy, as for the produciton it sounds very heavy nd powerful with all of the musical instruments having a brutal sound to them.

In my opinion this was a great album from Deathspell Omega and if you are a fan of this band, you probably already own this album. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Solo Fide I" "Blessed Are The Dead Whiche Dye In The Lorde" "Hetomasia" "Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice" and "Drink The Devil's Blood". RECEMMONDED BUY.
