Communion are a band from Chile that plays a very raw and old school mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their album "At The Announcement" which will be released in 2018 as a joint effort between The Sinister Flame and Hells Headbangers.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams that also have a very first wave feeling to them at times.
A great amount of old school South American death and black metal influences can be heard in the bands musical style while the riffs also bring in a great amount of dark sounding melodies along with the solos and leads being done in a very raw and chaotic fashion, intros can also be heard before each track and also bring in a brief use of synths and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Communion plays a musical style that takes the rawest and heaviest elements of old school South American black and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover Occultism and Evil themes.
In my opinion Communion are a very great sounding raw and old school mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Impalement To Destroy" "enthroned Inquisition" and "Ultimate ordeal". 8/5 out of 10.
