Ljosazabojstwa are a band from Belarus that plays a mixture of black, war and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Sychodzanne" which will be released on June 30th by Hellthrasher Productions.
Horror movie style keyboards start off the ep and after the intro the music goes into more of heavier direction along with a great amount of 90's influences and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and after awhile death metal growls are added into the music.
Touches of doom metal can be heard in the slower riffing along with the riffing also bringing in dark sounding melodies and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard along with some black metal screams and war metal elements being added onto the recording.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they remain true to an old school of black/death metal while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the tremolo picking during the faster sections of the songs gives the music a more raw feeling and classical guitars are also used briefly along with a small amount of spoken word samples and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and at times keyboards are also mixed in with the heavier sections of the music and they also bring in a brief instrumental before closing the ep with a vocal track.
Ljosazabojstwa plays a musical style that takes the 90's era genres of war, black, and dearth metal and mixes it with a touch of doom metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics are written in Belarusian and cover anti Christianity, death and cruelty themes.
In my opinion Ljosazabojstwa are a very great sounding mixture of black, war and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Zhuba" and "Zabojstwa Ijosa". 8/5 out of 10.
