Verhext are a band from Finland that plays a very heavy, fast and raw form of satanic old school black metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Dogma" which was released by Hammer Of Hate.
The album starts out with dark sound effects before going into a very heavy, fast and raw old school black metal direction along with a good amount of blast beats which also lead up to high pitched screams kicking in and after awhile the ban d start bringing in a mixture of mid paced and fast parts.
When the album goes into other songs melody starts finding its way into the music along with the vocals getting deeper in certain sections of the recording as well as a small amount of slower parts while for the most part the band sticks to a fast sound for at least 95 percent of the album and on one of the songs there is a small amount of riffs that being a very ritualistic feeling to the recording.
With this album Verhext stick to a more fast, raw and traditional form of satanic Finnish black metal and the music is more rooted in the 90s and stays away from any modern trend and this album has all of the most qualities of second wave black metal as well as playing the music they way it was meant to sound.
Song lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferian and Occult themes, while the production has a very dark, raw, heavy and old school sound along with the bass guitars being mixed down low in the mix as well as some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Verhext are a very great sounding heavy, fast, raw and satanic old school black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "L.O.S.T" "Contempt of Emptiness" and "...Through Chaos". 8/5 out of 10.
