Akouphenom are a band from Spain that plays a mixture of black and death metal with some experimental and avant garde structures and this is a review of their self released ep "Flesh Sublimation".
Avant garde soundscapes start off the ep along with spoken word parts a few seconds later and elements of experimental and noise are also used at times and after the intro the music goes into a very fast and raw musical direction that also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats along with some grim black metal screams.
At times the music mixes the experimental and heavy parts together and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with death metal growls also being added into certain sections of the recording and the majority of the tracks are very long and epic in length and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very distorted yet melodic fashion while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to and as the ep progresses elements of bestial black./death and war metal are added onto the recording.
Akouphenom plays a musical style that takes war, black, and death metal and mixes them with avant garde and experimental structures to create something different and original, the production sounds very dark, raw and heavy while the lyrics cover dark, poetic, and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Akouphenom are a very great sounding experimental 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 "Absurd of the Arkhe" and 'Incorporeal". 8 out of 10.
