Katachthon are a band from Greece that plays a very bestial form of war/black metal and this is a review of their self titled 2015 demo which was released by Black Sun Cult Productions.
Rain and thunder sounds start off the demo along with some militant style drumming and powerful bass guitars a few seconds later and after the intro the music starts going into a very fast and raw black/war metal direction that also uses bestial style black/death growls and a great amount of blast beats.
High pitched screams can be heard at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when solos and leads are utilized they are in a very dark and old school black/death metal direction and some songs also mix in a small amount of melody in with a more raw and bestial style and some of the alter tracks also bring in a small amount of sound effects.
Katachton plays a very raw and old school of black/war metal that also mixes in a great amount of bestial growls to create some very dark, heavy and aggressive music, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover War, Hellenic Mythology and History.
In my opinion Katachthon are a very great sounding black/war metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Realm Of Hades" and "War Against All". 8 out of 10.
