Pimeydentuoja are a band from Finland that h as been featured before in this zine and plays a bestial mixture of war, black and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Hellcrowned' which was released as a joint effort between Symbol Of Domination, More Hate Productions and Black Plague Records.
Horror movie style synths start off the album along with some demonic yet ritualistic voices in the background and after the intro the music goes into a very fast and raw war metal direction which also utilizes a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats along with a small amount of morbid sounding melodies.
Vocals are mostly bestial death metal growls along with a few black metal screams and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music also has a great amount of 90's influences while still having a modern touch and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording and samples are also used briefly and as the album progresses a small amount of melodic guitar leads can be heard.
Pimeydentuoja creates another recording that remains true to the bestial black/death metal style of their previous release, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover blasphemy, demons, satanic rites and anti Christianity themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Pimeydentuoja and if you are a fan of bestial black/death metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hellcrowned" "Invocations Of Wrath And Fire" and "Altar Of The Vilde God". 8 out of 10.
