Evil Nerfal are a band from Columbia that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Bellum Est Pater Omnium" which was released as a joint effort between Grimm Distrubution and Morbid Skull Records.
A classical music intro starts off the album before going into a heavier direction which also mixes in elements of death metal along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard along with the vocals being mostly angry black metal screams.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while growls are also used at times along with the solos and leads also bringing in more of a black/death metal style as well as the riffs also bringing in a great amount of dark sounding melodies.
At times the vocals also get melodic while the music also mixes in a decent amount of 80's and 90's influences without losing the modern touch along with the solos and leads also getting more melodic as the album progresses and when tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the songs a more raw feeling, acoustic guitars can also be heard briefly and when spoken word parts are utilized they also give the music more of a ritualistic feeling and a couple of the later tracks are instrumentals.
On this recording Evil Nerfal expands on their satanic black metal style by adding in more death and traditional metal elements this time around as well as getting more melodic, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics are written in a mixture of Spanish and English and cover Satanism, Occultism, Anti Christianity and Misanthropy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Evil Nerfal and if you are a fan of satanic black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fuck Off Jesus Christ" "En Las Fauces Del Demonio" and "Sathanas Kingdom Rises". 8/5 out of 10.
