Ilemauzar are a band from Singapore that plays a mixture of black, death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Ascension" which was released by Sepsis Records.
Epic sounding synths start off the album and after the intro the music goes into more of a blackened death metal direction along with some grim black metal screams and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
When tremolo picking is utilized it gives the songs more of a raw feeling and the tracks also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and the riffs also use a decent amount of melody and there is also an instrumental track that also introduces Asian style acoustic guitars onto the recording while the main focus remains more on a heavier style and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Ilemauzar plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in a very aggressive and melodic style of black metal while also mixing in influences of thrash and death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Luciferian, Goetic, Blasphemy and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Ilemauzar are a very great sounding mixture of black, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Dessolute Assumption" "Doctrine 68" and "Reclamation". 8 out of 10.
