Hellspawn/Lords Of Eternity/Rotten Records/2001 CD Review


  Hellspawn  where  a  band  from  Australia  that  played  a  very  atmospheric  form of  satanic  black  metal and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2001  album  "Lords  Of  Eternity"  which  was  released  by  Rotten  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  thrown  into  the  music  at  times,  while  the  keyboards  bring  a  very  dark,  epic  and  atmospheric  sound  to  the  music,  as  for  the  bass  playing  it  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  is  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  black  metal  riffs  that  utilize  some  dark  sounding  melodies  and  death  metal  influences  in  the  riffing  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording,  as  for  the  classical  guitars  when  utilized  they  use  finger  picking  to  enhance  the  dark  atmosphere  that  is  coming  out  of  the  music.

  Vocals a re  mostly  grim  sounding  and  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  with  some  deep  death  metal  growls  and  spoken  word  ritualistic  parts,  while  the  lyrics  cover  Satanism,  Occultism,  Darkness  and  Anti  Christian  themes,  as  for  the  production  it h as  a  very  strong,  powerful,  and  heavy  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  Hellspawn  where  a  very  great  sounding  atmospheric  satanic  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "The  Whores  Of  Adramalech"  "Baphomet's  Disciples"  and  "Realm  Of  The  Black  Angels".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
