A very dark and evil sounding intro starts off the album before going into a mid 80's death thrash metal direction and adding in bestial black metal growls which also gives the music elemwnts of war metal and you can also hear a great amount of blast beats in the faster sections of the music along with some elements of raw black metal.
Morbid sounding melodies can be heard in certain sections of the recording and when solos and leads are utilized they are very raw and chaotic sounding and there is also a track that is very long and epic in length and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts which also brings in a great amount of early 90's extreme metal influences and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the last trrack brings in the sounds of human torture and harsh noises.
Arkaik Excruciation takes the rawest, heaviest and most of brutal styles of 90's war, black, death and thrash metal to create some of the most darkest and bestial extreme metal that there is out there, the production sounds very dark, raw and old school while the lyrics cover darkness, death and necromantic themes.
In my opinion Arkaik Excruciation are a very great sounding raw and bestial mixture of war, black, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "At Graveyard" and "Lunar Carnage". 8 out of 10.
