Wrok are a band from the Netherlands that plays a very raw and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "De Onheilsbode" which was released by Heidens Hart Records.
A very dark and ritualistic sound starts off the album before adding in blast beats and fast riffs that utilize a great amount of tremolo picking to get a raw feeling while the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's style and after awhile high pitched yet grim black metal screams start to make their presence known.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and Gregorian chants can also be heard in between all of the tracks and the riffs are all done on power chords with no melodies or guitar leads ever being utilized and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with all of the songs sticking to a very heavy and raw musical direction.
Wrok plays a style of black metal that goes back to the primitive era of the early 90's second wave style, the production sounds very dark, raw and old school while the lyrics are written in Dutch and cover death, Satanism, sickness, winter, and weapons themes.
In my opinion Wrok are a very great sounding raw satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Steerf Vor Satan" "Satans Glorie" "In Pijin" and "Op De Vlerkan Van Azazel". 8 out of 10.
