Ruach Raah are a band from Portugal that plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Under The Insignia Of Baphomet" which was released by War Arts Productions.
A very fast and raw musical sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats as well as a great amount of punk elements while the vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams and the music also has a lot of 90's influences.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with most of the riffing being done on power chords and the music always avoids any melody or solos as well as always remaining very heavy and as the album progresses a brief use of spoken word parts and movie samples can also be heard.
Ruach Raah plays a style of black metal that is very raw and heavily rooted in the early 90's while also mixing in elements of punk, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Ruach Raah are a very great sounding raw black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hang Humanity Upside Down" "A Ira do Lucifer" and "Bodysnatchers". 8 out of 10.
