Venowl are a band from Chicago, Illinois that plays a mixture of raw black metal and noise and this is a review of their self released 2009 cassette "Juldoriion".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized, while the sound effects bring harsh noise sounds to the music and there is no use of a bass on this recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding black metal riffs with some drone doom metal elements when they are utilized but for the most part are kind of hard to hear and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are all high pitched black metal/noise screams, while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it with the songs being short.
In my opinion Venowl are a very great sounding hybrid of raw black metal and harsh noise and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Regrets And Melancholy In A Field Of Silent" and "Slaughtered And Defeated In A Tree". RECOMMENDED BUY.
