Stormvold are a duo from Spain that has been featured before in this zine and plays a bestial form of black/death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "IV Kataklismo" which was released by Xtreem Music.
A very heavy, brutal and bestial black/death metal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats as well as some demonic growls and the solos and leads also bring in more of an extreme death metal style while the tremolo picking gives the songs more of a raw war metal feeling.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and t he songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and atmospheric sounding synths can also be heard briefly on a couple of tracks and most of the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's style of black, death and war metal and the guitar leads also get more chaotic as the album progresses.
Stormvold creates another recording that remains true to the bestial and war orientated form of black/death metal of previous released, the production sounds very raw yet heavy at the same time while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover darkness, chaos and war themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding release from Stormvold and if you are a fan of bestial black/death metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Eclipse Astral" "Ruido del Viento" and "Explosion Estellar". 8 out of 10.
