Typhonic Age are a band from North Carolina that plays a mixture of old school satanic black metal and thrash and this is a review of their self released 2012 demo "Wrath Of A New Dawn".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music 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 riffs that combine raw and primitive sounding old school black metal with thrash to create a sound of their own with melody being thrown into the riffing at times, while the lead guitars are very dark and melodic sounding black/thrash metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are all grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams, while the lyrics cover Satanism, Crowley and Persian occult 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 with the last song being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Typhonic Age are a very great sounding hybrid of old school occult black metal and thrash and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Therionic Wolfhowl" and "Ahriman Ascendent". RECOMMENDED BUY.
