Manticore are a band from Ohio that has been featured before in the zine with a musical style that I would describe as being bestial black/death metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Behold The Ascension Of The Execrated" which was released by Deathgasm Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times , while the bass playing 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 bestial black metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding with the darker riffing having a create amount of death metal influences to them along with a brief use of clean playing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are all high pitched black/death metal screams and growls, while the lyrics cover dark, satanic and blasphemous themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great recording from Manticore and if you are a f an of this band, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "From The Darkness Below" "Abhorrent Blasphemy In The Vestal Cavity" "Denying The Resurrection" and "In Nomine Sathanas" which is a Venom cover. RECOMMENDED BUY.
