Visions are a band from Spain that plays a satanic and unholy form of black metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Premonition 666" which was released by Sentineal 84' Records.
A very fast, heavy and raw black metal sound starts off the ep along with some blast beats and grim sounding high pitched screams and you can also hear a small amount of melody being utilized in their music at times and most of the music is rooted in the heavier side of the 90's sound and the bass guitars bring a great amount of power into the music.
When guitar solos and leads are added into the music they make the songs sound a lot more chaotic and after awhile there is a good balance between slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the songs remain true to an old school musical direction and there are certain sections where the vocals also start to get a bit more darker and deeper and after awhile you can hear a small amount of atmospheric elements being added into the bands musical sound..
As the ep progresses there is a brief use of battle samples at the beginning of one of the tracks and the band starts adding in a small amount of pagan black metal elements along with a brief bass guitar lead and the following track is a cover of Burzum's "My Journey To the Stars" which remains true to the original version of the track and the rest of the ep sees the band going for more of a raw and old school black/death metal sound as well as adding in some Brazilian style thrash metal elements.
Visions play a very old school style of satanic black metal while also having a bit of diversity in their sound as the ep progresses and they also have a great amount of rawness and heaviness in their music, the production has a very dark and heavy sound while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism and Paganism themes.
In my opinion Visions are a very great sounding satanic and unholy black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nocturnal Obsessions" "Pagan Hordes" and "Mark Of The Beast". 8 out of 10.
