Ignominious are a band from Hungary that plays a very raw and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "The Throne And The Altar" which was released by Hidden Marly Productions.
Melodic guitar leads and riffs start off the album along with some drum beats and powerful sounding bass guitars a few seconds later and when t he music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the music a more raw feeling while the vocals are high pitched black metal screams.
A great amount of 90's second wave influences can be heard throughout the recording along with some Swedish influences and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and after awhile the vocals also start getting more grim and angry sounding and classical guitars can also be heard briefly but the main focus is on a heavier style
Ignominious plays a style of black metal that is very raw and melodic in the 90's tradition, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover death, passing and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Ignominious are a very great sounding raw and melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sacrilege" "The Throne And The Altar" and "Sun Shall Sleep Eternally". 8 0ut of 10.
