Eosphorus are a band from Sweden that plays a very raw and melodic form of satanic/occult black metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Winds Of Apep" which was released by WormHoleDeath Records.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album before the music starts getting heavier and darker along with a good amount of melody in both the riffing and solos and after the instrumental intro the music starts going for a more raw and melodic black metal direction along with some grim sounding high pitched screams.
Blast beats van be heard in the faster sections of the music and the band also uses a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and most of the music is in the vein of Swedish satanic/occult black metal and there is a dark and evil atmosphere being included in all of the songs on the recording and the band also demonstrates a great amount of talent and skill on their musical instruments.
Spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording and as the album progresses the vocals start to sound more deeper and hateful in sound and some of the guitar riffing also starts to utilize elements and thrash and the acoustic guitars also make their return on a later track before the music returns back to a heavier musical direction as well as adding in longer songs that utilize epic structures and a small amount of keys and some of the alter songs also bring in a good mixture of both clean and heavy parts.
Eosphorus play a very true raw and melodic form of satanic black metal with their music remaining true to the Swedish style of occult black metal while also adding in more epic structures and the band has a perfect balance between speed, heaviness, aggression and melody, the production sounds very powerful and heavy while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism, Death Worship and Devil Worship.
In my opinion Eosphorus are a very great sounding fast, raw and melodic satanic/occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Satan Redeemer" "Winds Of Apep" "Stand on My Side" and "Path Of The Dead". 8 out of 10.
