Edenkaiser are a band from Spain that has been featured before in this zine and plays a raw and old school form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Dominum Ex Mortis" which was released by Black Steel Music.
A very dark sounding intro with nature sounds starts off the album along with some clean guitars a few seconds later as well as some melodic guitar leads which are also used on a regular basis throughout the recording and after the intro the music goes into more of a raw black metal direction that utilizes a great amount of blast beats.
Vocals use a great mixture of high pitched screams and demonic growls and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the sounds that where on the intro also make a return in certain sections of the recording while one of the later tracks also brings in a few seconds of battle samples and the music also brings in more of an old school and traditional style of black metal onto the songs and some of the later tracks bring in a brief use of melodic Gregorian chants briefly while the heavier parts bring in an influence of thrash, back up gang shouts and riffs that also utilize a small amount of melody.
Edenkaiser plays a style of black metal that is very raw and old school sounding while also adding in a touch of death and thrash metal, the production sound s very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occult, Conspiracy, War and Nihilism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Edenkaiser and if you are a fan of raw and old school black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Black Steel Legions" "The Witch And The Beast" and "Oblivion Remains". 8 out of 10.
