Rasha'im are a band from Denver, Colorado that plays a very raw and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 demo "An Invocation" which was released by Nauseating Whiff Records.
A very distorted sound starts off the demo along with some ritualistic spoken word parts and melodic occult chanting a few seconds later before adding in grim black metal screams and after the intro the music goes into a very fast, raw and old school direction t hat also utilizes a great amount of blast beats.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and when guitar leads a re utilized they bring a small amount of evil sounding melodies onto the recording while still being in a raw direction and clean playing can also be heard at times.
Rasha'im plays a style of black metal that is very dark, raw and also brings in more of an evil or occult sound than a lot of the modern American bands and also brings in a bit of the 90's style of the genre, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Rasha'im are a very great sounding raw and satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Second Deceiver" and "Tongues Of Black". 8 out of 10.
