Satanic Assault Division are a band from Denmark that plays a very raw and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Kill The Cross" which was released as a joint effort between Satanath Records and Metallic Media.
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the album before going into a very fast and raw black metal direction that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats and high pitched screams and you can also hear death metal growls at times as well as that genre also influencing the bands musical style along with elements of thrash.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads are done in a more melodic fashion and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording while some of the heavier riffs bring in a touch of black'n'roll along with some first wave elements an they close the album with a cover of The Murder Junkies "Once A Whore".
Satanic Assault Division plays a style of black metal that is very fast, raw, melodic and blasphemous and also mixes in a touch of death and thrash metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Anti Christian, Blasphemy and Murder themes.
In my opinion Satanic Assault Division are a very great sounding raw and melodic satanic black metal band and if are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Destroying The Temple Of God" "Kill The Cross" "Satanic Purification" and "Rays of Poison". 8 out of 10.
