Begrime Exemious are a band from Alberta, Canada that has been featured before in this zine and plays a bestial mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Enslavement Conquest" which will be released in March by Dark Descent Records.
A very dark, raw and melodic old school death metal sound starts off the album giving the music more of an early 90's feeling and after a fw seconds high pitched black metal screams and eleemnts of war metal are added into the music and when the songs speed up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Death metal growls can be heard in some of the songs while a great amount of the riffs seem to be heavily influences by thrash while t he slower sections bring in a touch of doom metal and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads also remain true to an old school black/death metal sound and as the album progresses the riffs get more catchy and also add in elements of groove and they also bring in a cover of Incantation's "Impending Diabolical Conquest" while the whole album also remains heavy from beginning to ending of the recording.
On this recording Begrime Exemious retain some of the war, black and death metal of previous releases while expanding more on melody and thrash elements this time around to create some very old school sounding metal, the production sounds very raw yet heavy while the lyrics cover nihilism, Satanism, war and horror themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Begrime Exemious and if you are a fan of black, death and thrash metal, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Overpowered (Under Siege)" "Conscription Woes" "Noose For A Monarch" and "When the Vultures Leave". 8 out of 10.
