A Transylvanian Funeral are a band from Indiana that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style on this recording as being raw and primitive occult black metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Gorgos Goetia" which was released by Forbidden Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized on this recording, while the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast occult black metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding with some thrash influences and melody being thrown into the riffing as well as a brief use of soft and clean playing and their are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals a re mostly high pitched black metal screams as well as some chants and deeper vocals being utilized at times as well as some samples, while the lyrics cover Occultism, Crowley, Left Hand Path and Percival themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it while you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording as well as some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from A Transylvanian Funeral and if you are a fan of t his band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Burning Astral Hunger" "Mars Exalted In Capricorn" "Pervival In Armor" and "Hymn To Gorgon". RECOMMENDED BUY.
