DunkelNacht are a band from France that plays a very aggressive mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Ritualz Of The Occult" which was released by WormHoleDeath Records.
Avant garde drones start off the ep before adding in some neo classical style keyboards which also introduces melodic guitar leads and blast beats onto the recording and the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams and death metal growls are also utilized along with some melodic guitar riffs.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some of the riffs also get technical at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and some of the elements that where present on the intro also get mixed in with the heavier parts at times and some of the riffs also bring in elements of modern prog metal while one track also brings in a small amount of clean playing and melodic singing while ethnic instruments are added onto the last song along with a few spoken word parts.
DunkelNacht plays a musical style takes an aggressive black metal style and mixes it in with some death metal, prog and experimental elements to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while t he lyrics cover Occultism, Atheism, Anti Abrahamic and Mankind themes.
In my opinion Dunkelnacht are a very decent sounding experimental mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ritualz Of The Occult" and "Emblem of A Diluted Deism". 7 out of 10.
