Morokh are a band from Moscow, Russia that plays a mixture of old school black metal and hardcore punk and this is a review of their 2015 album "The Unholy Masquerade" which was released by Zero Hour Recordings.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody along with the vocals being mostly high pitched black metal screams as well as some hardcore style shouts and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody.
Elements of black'n'roll can also be heard at times while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some touches of sludge in the slower sections of the songs and the music also mixes in a great amount of punk influences and some of the tracks also bring in back up gang shouts and as the album progresses a brief use of melodic vocals, clean guitars and spoken word parts can also be heard.
Morokh plays a musical style that takes black metal, black'n'roll, sludge and hardcore punk and mixes them together to create something very different, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Morokh are a very great sounding mixture of black metal, black'n'roll, sludge and hardcore punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Evil Unchained" "For The Glory Of Satan" "The Unholy Masquerade" and "Deal With The Devil". 8 out of 10.
