AK-11 are a 1 man band from Australia that plays a very melodic, raw and primitive from of black/war metal and this is a review of his self released 2011 demo "Legendary,Demonic, And Invisible ".
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 strong and powerful sound with primitive riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine influences from pagan, war and black metal with alot of melodic, raw and primitive riffing in addition you can hear small amounts of death and thrash metal influences on certain songs, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding black metal guitar leads.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some deep war metal growls being thrown into the music at times as well as some samples, while the lyrics are written in a mixture of Russian and English and cover Russian Folklore, War and Satanic themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion AK-11 are a very great sounding melodic, raw and primitive hybrid of black and war metal and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Legendary, Demonic, And Invisible" and "Sniper Glory (Satan Guides My Aim)". RECOMMENDED BUY.
