Begrime Exemious/Visions Of The Scourge/Dark Descent Records/2012 CD Review

Begrime Exemious are a band from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada that plays a mixture of black, thrash, death and war metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Visions Of The Scourge" which was released by Dark Descent Records.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine the rawest elements of black, war, death and thrash metal to create a sound of their own along with some dark sounding melodies with a cover of Death's Evil Dead being a hidden track towards the end of the recording, while the lead guitars are very chaotic sounding black/thrash guitar solos and leads that bring back memories of the underground 80's metal scene.

Vocals range from high pitched black/war metal screams and deep death metal growls along with a brief use of samples from films, while the lyrics cover Nihilism, Satanism, War and Horror, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion Begrime Exemious are a very great sounding hybrid of black, war, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Oath Of Impiety" "Sacrament Of Virgin Flesh" and "Relic Of Befouled Incantations". RECOMMENDED BUY.
