Christ Dismembered are a band from Australia that plays a fast and aggressive form of black metal and this is a review of their self titled and self released 2017 album.
Synths start off the album and bring in the atmosphere of a horror film and spoken word parts are also used briefly before going into a very fast and melodic direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal s creams along with a few death metal growls.
When tremolo picking is utilized it gives the songs more of a raw feeling while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion along with the music also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and elements of thrash can also be heard in some of the riffing as well as the music also being very heavily rooted in the mid 90's Swedish style.
Christ Dismembered plays a style of black metal that is very fast and aggressive in the mid 90's tradition, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover Satanism, Anti Christianity, Revenge and Hatred themes.
In my opinion Christ Dismembered ate a very great sounding fast and aggressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Slap In The Face Of God" "Swarm OF The Black Mass" and "Revel In Your Disgust". 8 out of 10.
