Exanimatvm are a band that plays a bestial form of black/death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Dispersae Et Tormentvm" which was released by Dunkelheit Produktionen.
Ritualistic spoken word parts start off the album along with some chanting in the background along with some rain and thunder sounds as well as some demonic voices and after awhile the music goes into a heavier musical direction with some elements of doom and also introduces melodic guitar leads onto the recording.
When the music speeds up it goes for a very fast and raw war metal style that also uses a great amount of blast beats along with tremolo picking while the vocals are done in a more bestial death metal growling style and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear a lot of morbid sounding melodies in the guitar riffing and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and all of the songs stick to a very heavy and dark musical direction and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Exanimatvm plays a style of death metal that is very dark and rooted in the 90's while also mixing in with the more bestial and war orientated style of black metal to create a very evil and blasphemous recording, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness, satanism, ancestral devotion, witchery and anti Christianity themes.
In my opinion Exanimmatvm are a very great sounding bestial mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vae Victus" "Exanimatvm" "Nocturnas Luminscencias" and "Shoort". 8 out of 10.
