Written In Torment are a solo project that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw, atmospheric and melodic form of occult black metal and this is a review of his 2015 promo which was released by Glorious North Productions.
A very fast, raw and old school black metal sound starts off the demo along with a great amount of blast beats and a few seconds alter melodic guitar leads make their presence known in the music along with some deep yet grim black metal screams and epic sounding keyboards can also be heard in the music.
All of the musical instruments on the recording h ave a very powerful sound to them and both of the songs bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave style while the clean signing also gives the music more of a pagan atmosphere and the last track also brings in a small amount of spoken word parts and is also very long and epic in length.
Written In Torment bring 2 songs on this promo that are very true to the raw style of 90's black metal while also having more epic structures and melody which also gives the music more of an up to date feeling, the production sounds very dark, raw and old school while the lyrics cover Occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Written In Torment and if you are a fan of raw and epic occult black metal, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Spear Of Destiny". 8 out of 10.
