Inthyflesh are a band from Portugal that plays a very raw and nihilistic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 double album "The Flaming Death" which will be released in September as a joint effort between Altare Productions and Blackseed Productions.
A very distorted reverb starts off the album before going into a very fast and raw black metal direction that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking and the vocals are mostly high pitched screams while the songs also bring in a great amount of 90's second wave influences along with a small amount of melody.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and none of the songs ever use any guitar solos or leads and the vocals also get very hateful at times while all of the musical instruments sound very powerful and the whole album remains very heavy and raw from the first to last second with no soft or clean parts ever being utilized.
Inthyflesh creates a double album that remains true to the raw and nihilistic black metal sound of previous recordings, the production sounds very dark, raw and old school while the lyrics cover darkness, death, nihilism, and selfness themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Inthyflesh and if you are a fan of raw black metal, you should check out this double album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blood Howling Eternity" "Forever Insanity" "Velvet Burial Shroud" and "Dismal Awakening". 8 out of 10.
