This is another review of a recording from Sweden's Thy Primordial which continues the raw and melodic style of black metal from previous releases and the album was originally released in 2002 and called "The Crowning Carnage" with the re-issue coming out in June of 2018 as a part of a box set by Dissonance.
A very fast and melodic sound starts off the album along with some high pitched black metal screams a few seconds later while the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody along with the tremolo picking giving the songs a more raw feeling and spoken word parts can also be heard briefly.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with one of the tracks introducing clean playing onto the recording and as the album progresses a small amount of growls can be heard and spoken word parts are also used briefly and they close the album with an instrumental which also adds in a small a,ount of sci-fi and avant garde eleemnts.
On this recording Thy Primordial remained true to their fast and melodic style of Swedish black metal, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover darkness and apocalyptic themes.
In my opinion this was another great sounding recording from Thy Primordial and if you are a fan of fast and melodic Swedish black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Genuine hatred" "Worldecay" and "Menace of Human Waste". 8 out of 10.
