Blaze Of Perdition are a band from Poland that has had an album reviewed before in this zine and plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Conscious Darkness" which was released by Agonia Records.
Spoken word parts start off the album along with some heavy yet melodic riffing a few seconds later while the vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams as well as a small amount of clean vocals and angry shouts and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Avant garde elements are also utilized at times along with a small amount of whispered vocals while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and spoken word parts are also used on some of the later tracks and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in the more modern and melodic atmospheric style.
Blaze Of Perdition creates another recording that remains true to their modern style of occult black metal, the production sounds very professional while t he lyrics cover Occultism, Spirituality and Altered States themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Blaze Of Perdition and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ashes Remain" and "Detachment Brings Serenity". 8 out of 10.
