Gehenna are a band from Nevada that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of raw black metal and hardcore and this is a review of their double ep release "Deathkamp Ov The Skull + Funeral Embrace" which will be released on August 14, 2015 by Magic Bullet Records.
Distorted open notes start off the album and a few seconds later black metal screams are added into the music and after awhile more hardcore elements are added into the music and when the songs speed up the music goes into more of a raw musical direction along with a great amount of blast beats.
When solos and leads are utilized they are very chaotic in sound and the music also adds in elements of thrash and some of the tracks are long and epic in length and on the second ep has shorter songs that bring in elements of d beat and punk and there are a lot of traces of war metal in the songs.
Gehenna remains true to their mixture of raw black metal, thrash and hardcore and create a very heavy sounding recording, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover violence, nihilism, murder, war, drugs and hate themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Gehenna and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "First Blood II" "Serve The Cult" and "Funeral Embrace". 8 out of 10.
