Trono Alem Morte are a band from Portugal that plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "O Olhar Atento da Escuridao" which will be released on December 21st as a joint effort between Harvest Of Death and Signal Rex.
A very dark and distorted sound starts off the album along with some drum beats and a lo-fi atmosphere while the vocals are done in a very grim yet mournful black metal style along with a great portion of the tracks being very long and epic in length and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
During the faster sections of the songs a great amount of tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the songs a more raw feeling while the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave tradition along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses a brief use of acoustic guitars and melodic chants which are also mixed down low in the mix can also be heard.
Trono Alem Morte plays a style of black metal that is very raw and lo-fi sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Portuguese and cover metaphysical and emotional themes.
In my opinion Trono Alem Morte are a very great sounding raw black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "O Olhar Atento da Escuridao" and "Ao Abracar a Ingrata Morte". 8 out of 10.
