Nosvrolok are a band that was from Ventura, California at the time of this recording then relocated to Southern Oregon with a music style that I would describe as being raw and primitive sounding occult black metal and this is a review of their 2005 album "Maledictum Parasystus" which was released by Desastrious.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with primitive recording that dominates throughout the recording, as for the synths they are only used briefly on one song and bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding with some dark melodies being thrown into the riffing as well as some traditional metal influences while the lead guitars are very raw and primitive sounding black metal guitar solos and leads that utilize some melody, as for the clasical guitars which are only used on the last song they use finger picking and full chords to add another dimension of darkness to the music.
Vocals are mostly high pitched hateful black metal screams that are very easy to understand along with some deep demonic growls being utilized on the last song, while the lyrics cover Occultism, Darkness, Anti Christian and Peverted 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 Nosvrolok are a very great sounding raw and primitive occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cunts-Seemingly, Salivating, Wet" and "When Those Rise To Feed". RECOMMENDED BUY.
