Sazernyst are a band from Italy that plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 demo "Worshipping The Ancient Fears Of God".
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the demo while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the faster sections of the songs also using a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the songs a more raw feeling and the vocals are all high pitched black metal screams.
Dark sounding melodies can also be heard in some of the riffing while the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion as well as most of the tracks being long and epic in length and a couple of tracks also introduces clean playing and death metal growls onto the recording.
Sazernyst plays a music of occult black metal that is very heavy, raw and traditional sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Ancient Occultism, Witchcraft and Evocative Ritual themes.
In my opinion Sazernyst are a very great sounding occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Forest Of Sorceries" and "The Mand Who Dominated Demons". 8 out of 10.
