Martyrvore are a band from New Hampshire that plays a bestial mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Obliteration" which was released by Deathrune Records.
Horror movie style synths and ritualistic spoken word parts start off the album and after the intro the music goes into more of a heavier war metal direction along with some high black metal screams and during the faster sections of the songs a great amount of blast beats can be heard and there is also a great amount of death metal influences.
Most of the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very chaotic fashion and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some of the riffing also brings in a decent amount of morbid sounding melodies and you can also hear a touch of doom/death in the slower sections of the songs.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when tremolo picking is utilized they give the songs more of a raw black metal feeling and a great portion of the tracks are very short in length and as the album progresses horror movie samples can be heard briefly and synths also return on a couple of instrumental tracks before the music makes a return back to a heavier direction and there is also a brief use of war sounds.
Martyrvore plays a musical style that takes black, war and death metal and mixes them together to create a very raw and bestial recording, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism, Anti Christian, Death, Destruction and War themes.
In my opinion Martyrvore are a very great sounding bestial mixture of war, black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Whores Of Death -Wenches Of Belial" "Iron Satan" :Earth Cracked In Half" and "Witch Of Death". 8/5 out of 10.
