Thyrgrim are a band from Germany that plays a very raw and fast form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album Dekaden" which will be released on September 10th by Talheim Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts o0ff the album along with some high pitched screams before going into a very fast and raw black metal direction that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and aftwer awhile melodic guitar leads are added onto the recording.
A lot of the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave black metal style and the riffs also bring in depressive sounding melodies at times and after awhile the music starts mixing in a good mixture of both modern and old school influences and all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and they also bring in a brief use of classical guitars on a few tracks along with a few seconds of spoken word parts before returning back to a heavier musical direction and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Thyrgrim plays a style of black metal that is very fast and raw in the beginning while the other have of the recording has more of an epic, melodic and depressive style going on which also makes the album very diverse, the production sound s very raw yet heavy at the same time while the lyrics are written in German and cover hate, anger, grief and depression themes.
In my opinion Thyrgrim are a very great sounding fast, raw, melodic and depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Die Holle Ist Heir" "Hass" "Der Weg" and "Wenn Es Schneit". 8 out of 10.
