Chalice Of Blood are a band from Sweden that plays a very raw and old school form of occult black metal and this is a review of their ep "Helig, Helig, Helig" which will be released in 2015 by Daemon Worship Productions.
Clean playing starts off the ep before going into more of a heavy and melodic direction and after the intro the music starts going for more of a fast and raw black metal sound along with some blast beats and high pitched grim screams which also gives the songs an old school feeling along with a very dark and evil presence.
On the following songs the band slows down a bit for a few seconds at times bringing in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the main focus remains on a very fast and raw old school black metal sound which also brings in a small amount of melodies at times and they also bring in a small amount of spoken word parts on one of the songs while the last track also brings back a small amount of clean playing before going back into a very fast and raw musical direction
Chalice Of Blood plays a style of occult black metal that is very fast, and raw and also has more of an old school feeling than most of the bands that are their counterparts, th e production sounds very raw and heavy, while the lyrics cover Occultism, left hand Path, and Death Worship themes.
In my opinion Chalice Of Blood are a very great sounding fast and raw occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nightside Serpent" and "Transcend The Endless". 8/5 out of 10.
