Deafknive are a band from Russia that plats a Lovecraft inspired form of post black metal and this is a review of their self released 2012 album which was released by Broken Limb Recordings.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast post black metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding along with some melody being thrown into the riffing as well as some soft and clean playing being utilized at times, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding post black metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams as well as a brief use of deep growls, while the lyrics are based on the writings of Lovecraft, as for t he production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound while you can hear all of the instruments that are present on this recording along with a mixture of studio and live tracks.
In my opinion Deathknife are a very great sounding Lovecraft inspired post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "To The Worms" "Shub Niggurath" and "Beyond The Wall Of Sleep". RECOMMENDED BUY.
