This is a review of a split album between Slovenia's Provocator and Bosnia's Sahrana caled "Holy Incest" which was released by Iron, Blood & Death Corp and we will start off the review with Provocator a band that plays a very raw and blasphemous form of black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a thrash influenced raw black metal sound along with some deep yet grim screams that also get high pitched at times and the music mixes the first and second wave styles together and when solos and leads are utilized they are very raw and chaotic sounding along with some melodies.
A lot of the faster sections utilize a great amount of blast beats and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the riffs can also be very melodic at times and when spoken word parts are utilized briefly they give the music more of a ritualistic feeling and one of their tracks is very long and epic in length, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Darkness, Occultism, Blasphemy and Satanism themes.
In my opinion Provocator are a very great sounding raw and blasphemous black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mother Of The Black Moon" and "Holy Incest".
Next up is Sahrana a band that plays a very raw and satanic form of bestial black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with the sounds of goats before going into a very fast and raw style of black metal that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats and when vocals are used they are very bestial sounding while also throwing in high pitched screams at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Elements of war metal can be heard in the bands musical style while the leads are very dark and melodic along with the songs being very heavily rooted in the 90's style and the riffs also bring in dark sounding melodies at times along with a slight touch of thrash and the last track also brings in spoken word parts, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism. Perversions and Blasphemous themes.
In my opinion Sahrana are a very great sounding blasphemous, bestial black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Satanic Wild Hogs (Eaters Of Christ's Flesh)" and "Raped Apostles Of Holy Father Kacavenda".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of raw, blasphemous and satanic black metal. 8 out of 10.
