Lembrando os Mortos are a band from Brazil and Uragay that plays a very old school form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 demo "Ritual De Despedida".
"Ritual De Despedida" which is also the title track and first song on the demo opens up with spoken word parts, world war II samples and slow and dark black metal guitar riffs along with some drums and after a couple of minutes grim black metal vocals make their way into the song and after awhile the music goes into a faster direction along with some blast beats for a couple of minutes and then alternating between slow and fast parts.
"O Ponto Fixo" begins with fast and raw black metal guitar riffs along with some blast beats from the drums which also leads up to some high pitched screams and after a couple of minutes the music slows down a bit and you can hear the bass guitars in the background before the song starts alternating between fast and slow parts.
"El Veneno Y La Cura" kicks in with stomping sounds before adding in some fast and melodic black metal guitar riffs along with some drums and blast beats and a few seconds later grim black metal vocals kick in and you can also hear the bass guitars in the song along with some mid paced sections.
"O Rumor Fatidico Dos Ventos" which is also the last song on the demo begins with sound effects and a minute later slow and melodic black metal guitar and bass riffs come into the song along with some drums and after awhile the guitars start utilizing some leads and solos thst come in and out of the song which also in return brings in grim vocals and as time goes in by there is a brief use of clean playing before getting heavy again
Song lyrics are written in their native tongue and seem to cover dark themes, while the production has a very heavy, raw and primitive sound to it while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
In my opinion Lembrando os Mortos" are a very great sounding old school black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ritual De Despedida" and "O Rumor Fatidico Dos Ventos". RECOMMENDED BUY.
