Archemoron are a band from Greece that plays an epic style of Greek black metal with some death metal influences and this is a review of their 2018 double album 'Year Of The Harvester" which was released by Southern Prayer.
Heavy riffs along with some melodic guitar leads start off the album while acoustic guitars and nature sounds are also added into certain sections of the recording along with the fast parts of the songs also bringing in a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking as well as the vocals being mostly grim black metal screams.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the songs also giving the songs more of an atmospheric feeling when they are utilized as well as the riffs also utilizing a decent amount of death metal elements.
The music also brings in a great amount of 90's era Greek influences but also keeping everything modern and as the album progresses clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them along with some semi melodic vocals being added onto the closing track.
Archemoron plays a style of black metal that is very epic in the classic Greek tradition but modern at the same time, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover Occultism themes.
In my opinion Archemoron are a very great sounding epic Greek black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this double album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Somewhere Beyond North" "Nebula Divina" "Clash Of Denial" and "Those Of The Suffering". 8/5 out of 10.
