Deisdaemonia are a solo project from Greece that plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of his 2016 album "Khthonian Hymns" which was released by Old Temple.
A very heavy, dark and melodic sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard while the tremolo picking also gives the songs more of a raw feeling and the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams.
A great amount of Swedish influences can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and some tracks also bring in a small amount of classical guitars and the vocals also get very deep at times and it also brings in a touch of death metal and the music also evokes a very ritualistic atmosphere at times and their is also a brief use of synths on a couple of the tracks and some songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and there is also a brief use of back up shouts.
Deisidaemonia plays a style of occult black metal on this recording that is very diverse, melodic, raw and ritualistic sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Luciferianism, Greek Mythology, Lovecraft, Occultism and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Deisidaemonia are a very great sounding occult black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hades Awake" "Khthonian Hymns" and "Passing the Acheron". 8 out of 10.
