Sarcalogos are a band from Oregon that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 ep "Echoes Of Silence".
Drum beats start off the ep along with some clean guitars a few seconds later before going into more of a fast and raw black metal direction that also brings in a great amount of blast beats, tremolo picking and high pitched screams and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave tradition.
Death metal growls can be heard in some parts of t he songs along with the riffs also using a small amount of melody and you can also hear some elements of thrash in the bands musical style and one of the tracks is very long and epic in length and clean playing also makes a return in other songs and the tracks also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Sarcalogos creates another recording that is still very much rooted in the raw second wave tradition while also mixing in elements of thrash and death metal along with more clean parts which also makes the songs stand out a bit more, the production sounds very dark and r aw while the lyrics cover Suicide and Satanism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sarcalogos and if you are a fan of raw and satanic black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Daybreak Over A Sunken Kingdom(Floods II)" and "Soul Terror". 8 out of 10.
