Azerine are a solo project from Arizona that plays a raw form of occult black metal and this is a review of his 2015 ep "Throne Ov Perdition" which was released by Merdumgiriz.
A very dark and raw black metal sound starts off the ep and a few seconds later the music speeds up and also brings blast beats, grim screams and melodic guitar leads onto the recording and the songs are very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave style and also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
At times the vocals get very high pitched and the slower riffs have a very dark and ritualistic vibe to them along with more of an orthodox style and all 3 of the tracks stick to a very heavy and old school black metal style that also avoids any modern trends and the ep sounds like it could of easily been released 20 years ago.
Azerine plays a style of occult black metal that is very raw and old school taking the genre back to is roots, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Occultism, Satanism, Chaos/Black Magick and Afterlife themes.
In my opinion Azerine are a very great sounding raw, occult black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Darkness Unparalelled". 8 out of 10.
