Ophidian Coil are a band from Serbia that plays a very raw, melodic, and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Denial | Well | Becoming" which was released by Obscure Abhorrence Productions.
A very dark and ritualistic intro starts off the ep along with some organs and after the intro the music goes for more of a raw black metal direction along with some blast beats as well as a good mixture of grim and high pitched screams and the music also incorporates a decent amount of melody and also brings in a small amount of growls and melodic ritualistic chants at times.
There is a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts present throughout the recording and the riffs also bring in a 90's black metal feeling at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are in a very dark and melodic musical direction and on some of the tracks the guitars add in a slight thrash influence and one of the alter tracks also adds in a few seconds of angry shouts.
Ophidian Coil plays a style of black metal that is very fast, raw and grim sounding while also displaying a decent amount of melody at times, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism and Death themes.
In my opinion Ophidian Coil are a very great sounding raw, and melodic satanic black metal b and and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Gloria In Deo" and 'Thousand Voices Of the Devil's Call". 8 out of 10.
