Verbum Verus are a band from the Netherlands that plays a very satanic and occult form of black metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Melkiresha" which was released by Daemon Worship Productions.
A very slow, dark and melodic sound starts off the album with the music having a blackened doom feeling to it which also leads up to some grim vocals and screams which also have a melodic tone to them at times and after a few minutes the music really starts going for a more mid paced black metal direction and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
When fast parts are added into the music the album starts having a more raw feeling to it while the band is a lot more than that style along with a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as blast beats being utilized when the time calls for it and the band also brings in a few long and epic in length.
As the album progresses the black metal screams start having a more depressive feeling to them at times and the songs have a very dark and orthodox satanic black metal sound from beginning to end of the recording and atmospheric sounds are added on one of the songs and gives the music a dark dark and ritualistic feeling and the last song also utilizes a great amount of avant garde sounds and calls up the infernal names.
Verbum Verus create some very dark, heavy and raw satanic occult black metal with their music showing how black metal should really sound, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover Satanism and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Verbum Verus are a very great sounding satanic, occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Fourth Kingdom" and "Primula Signis". 8/5 out of 10.
