Barzakh are a band from Indonesia that plays a very raw and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 2 song promo.
A raw, melodic an old school black metal sound starts off the promo along with some growls and grim screams and the music is more rooted in the 90's second wave style and the music brings in a decent amount of blast beats and the music also brings in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
The second track starts off with a melodic black metal style and deep growls before adding in high pitched screams and blast beats that also takes the music in a faster direction while also mixing in mid paced parts at times and the music also remains true to an early 90's style of black metal.
Barzakh plays a style of black metal that is rooted in the early 90's tradition of the genre while also mixing in a decent amount of melody, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover Satanism, Life, Darkness and Hatred.
In my opinion Barzakh are a very great sounding raw and melodic, old school satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this promo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Shadow In The Grief". 8 out of 10.
