Aevangalist are a band with members from both Oregon and Illinois that plays an occult and experimental mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Enthrall To the Void Of Bliss" which was released by 20 Buck Spin.
A very dark, distorted and melodic guitar lead starts off the album along with some avant garde sound effects and after a couple of minutes the music starts getting heavier along with a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls and the faster sections bring in a great amount of blast beats and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
At times the music can be very experimental and when solos and leads are utilized they are very dark and melodic and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and there are also some melodic chants also being utilized at times and the music also mixes in a great amount of atmospheric elements and when spoken word parts are utilized they give the music more of a ritualistic feeling and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses elements of ambient can be heard and saxophones can be heard on the last track..
Aevangalist plays a style of black/death metal that is very dark and experimental sounding building upon the evil style of the genre and taking it to new levels, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover Occultism, Left Hand Path, and Mysticism themes.
In my opinion Aevangalist are a very great sounding experimental mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Arcanae Manifesta" "Levitating Stones" and "Manifestation of Transcendental Evil". 8 out of 10.
