From Hell are a band from Indonesia that plays a very epic, melodic and atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Dynasty" which was released by Naturmacht Productions.
A very dark and atmospheric sound starts off the album along with some clean playing and nature sounds before going into more of a fast and melodic black metal direction which also introduces guitar leads, blast beats and high pitched screams to the recording and the songs also bring in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the atmospheric elements and clean playing are also mixed in with the heavier side of the bands musical style.
At times the songs bring in a thrash influence while the cleaner parts also show elements of progressive rock along with a good amount of acoustic guitars being added in at times and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses you can hear a great amount of folk music traces being added into some of the tracks and they give the music more of a pagan feeling when they are utilized.
On some of the songs a small amount of clean singing vocals are added into the music and when spoken word parts are added in briefly they add to the epic side of the bands musical style as well as adding in a great amount of talent and skill to the guitar solos and leads and they also add in some of the more modern post black metal sound at times and some of the riffing also has a modern progressive metal feeling at times.
From Hell takes a very fast, raw and melodic style of black metal and makes it more epic, atmospheric sounding while also adding in progressive and experimental elements to create an album that will be remembered as a classic, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark fantasy, occultism, tantra, warfare, devastation, triumphant, celebration, loss and death.
In my opinion From Hell are a very great sounding atmospheric, epic and melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ming's Unicorn" "The Seventh Riverwizard" and "Final Triumphant In Gie Rax Gate". 8/5 out of 10.
