Fathomhell are a band from Spain that has been featured before in this zine that plays a very raw and melodic form of occult black metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "KvrX" which was released by Cold Raw Records.
A very dark and ritualistic sounding intro starts off the ep and then the music starts going into a more dark and melodic black metal direction as w ell as speeding up a bit and adding in grim sounding vocals and screams and the band also utilizes a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
When blast beats are added into the music the music starts evoking a more raw and old school feeling and when solos a re added into the songs the recording has an even more dark and melodic feeling to it as well as a blackened thrash feeling being added into the guitar riffing and both of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the bonus tracks are from the first ep i reviewed a year back.
Fathomhell show a great amount of growth with their newer music with their current side being even more dark and melodic, the production has a very dark and powerful sound where you can also h ear all of the musical instruments that are present on both tracks and the lyrics are a concept with the songs covering occult and serpent themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Fathomhell and if you are a fan of melodic occult black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Serpent II". 8/5 out of 10.
