Hegemony are a band from Alabama that plays a mixture of war, black and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 demo which which was released on cassette by Goatprayer Records.
A very chaotic sounding guitar lead starts off the demo along with some heavy riffing a few seconds later and once the bestial death metal growls and blast beats kick in the music starts going into more of a fast war metal direction and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's tradition of underground metal.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some of the riffs bring in some raw black metal elements and dark sounding melodies and there is also a brief use of grim screams and some oft he solos and leads bring in more of a dark and melodic doom/death metal style.
Hegemony plays a musical style that takes war, black and bestial death metal and mixes them together to create some very dark, raw and heavy music, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Hegemony are a very great sounding mixture of war, black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Fist Of heretical Triumph". 8 out of 10.
