Mephistopheles/Songs Of The Desolate One/Last Episode/1999 CD Review

Mephistopheles where a band from Germany that played that played a very atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their 1999 album "Songs Of The Desolate Ones" which was released by Last Episode.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown in, while the keyboards bring a very dark and atmospheric feel to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful tone that is very easy to hear on this recording.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast black metal riffing that is very melodic at times and on ocassion has a thrash and traditional metal feeling to it, while the lead guitars are very dark and melodic sounding black metal guitar leads and solos.

Vocals are a mixture of black metal scremas mixed in with some deep growls and clean singing vocals along with some ocassional spoken word passages, while the lyrics cover Satanism, Darkness and Anti Christianity, as for the production it has a very powerful and professional sound to it.

In my opinion Mephistophels where a very good atmospheric black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should c heck out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Kurgan Supremacy" "Opaque Fortess" and "Northern Eternity". RECEMMONDED BUY.
