Dor Feafaroth are a band from Russia that plays a very raw, atmospheric and melodic form of pagan/black metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Extermination Of Spiritual Leprosy" which was released as a joint effort between Symbol Of Domination productions and Yar Productions.
A very heavy and raw black metal sound starts off the album along with some blast beats, elements of thrash and a mixture of high pitched screams and deep death metal growls while you can still hear a lot of melody in the music and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recordings.
Atmospheric keyboards are brought into the music at times and they also give the music more of an epic along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and melodic pagan vocals are also brought into the music on one of the tracks and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when solos and leads are utilized they bring even more melody into the songs.
Dor Feafaroth plays a style of pagan black metal that is very raw and melodic and also brings back the keyboard style of the 90's but done with a more modern approach, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Russian and cover nature, misanthropy, paganism and Anti Christian themes.
In my opinion Dor Feafaroth are a very great sounding raw, melodic and atmospheric pagan/black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Oath" "Architect" and "Vere Pappa Mortuus Est". 8 out of 10.
