Archemoron are a band from Greece that plays an epic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Sulphur And Fire" which was released by Cryptica Productions.
A very fast, raw and melodic black metal sound starts off the album along with a touch of death metal and after a few seconds the music speeds up and adds in blast beats along with some grim screams and the band also brings in blackened death metal style guitar solos and leads in some parts of the songs.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and when synths are utilized they give the music more of an atmospheric feeling and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Sounds of nature at times can be heard in some of the songs at times along with a small amount of clean singing vocals and as the album progresses the solos and leads start utilizing more melodies while some of the faster riffs bring in more of a raw and old school black metal feeling to the tracks and a couple of the songs also brings in a brief use of acoustic guitars and they also bring in a short instrumental before making a return back to a heavier musical direction on the remaining tracks.
Archemoron plays a style of black metal that is very aggressive, heavy and epic sounding along with some atmospheric elements and also brings in a touch of blackened death metal to their musical style as will as being heavily influenced by the Nordic style at times, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover darkness, occultism and anti christian themes.
In my opinion Archemoron are a very great sounding epic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Across The Seven Seas of My Soul" "Ancient Callings" "Preachers Of Heaven, Maggots Of Earth" and "Lacerate the Mind'. 8 out of 10.
