This is a review of another recording from Chile's Communion which continues the raw and old school mixture of black and death metal and the album will be released in 2018 by Hells Headbangers and is called "The Communion".
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the album along with some morbid sounding melodies a few seconds later which also gives the songs more of a death metal feeling while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams along with the solos and leads also sticking to an old school black/death metal style.
A great amount of both 80's and 90's influences can be heard in the bands musical style while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a decent amount of blast beats along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses elements of thrash can also be heard in some of the riffing and one track also brings in a small amount of demonic growls.
Communion creates another recording that remains true to their raw and old school mixture of black and death metal from previous releases, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover Occultism, Evil and Anti Atheism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Communion and if you are a fan of old school black and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Glorify The Dark" "Witching Thrust" and "Bloody Butcher". 8 out of 10.
