Dark Managarm are a band from France that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very fast, raw and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2009 album "Victorious March" which was re-issued in 2015 by Iron, Blood & Death Corporation along with a couple of tracks that where not on the original version.
A very fast and raw yet melodic sound starts off the album along with soem high pitched screams that also takes the music into a faster direction that also incorporates a great amount of brutal blast beats and the solos and leads are very dark and melodic while also bringing in a touch of the 90's Swedish style.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and death metal growls can also be heard at times and some of the riffs also bring in a touch of thrash influences and the last track on the original album before the bonus tracks bring in the sounds of war before making a return back to a heavier musical direction and the 2 bonus traks also remain true to a very fast and raw style of black metal.
With this recording Dark Managarm played a style of black metal t hat was very fast, raw and brutal along with some melodies as well as a great amount of influences from the 90's Swedish bands, the production sounds very raw yet heavy at the same time while the lyrics cover Satanism and War themes.
In my opinion this was another great sounding recording from Dark Managarm and if you are a fan of fast and raw black metal, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fuck the Universe" "Show Us the Way Towards Khaos" "Slave Of Religion" and "Possessed". 8 out of 10.
