Omenfilth are a band from the Philippines that plays a very raw, melodic and old school form of black metal with some death and thrash metal elements and this is a review of their 2018 album "Hymns Of Diabolical Treachery" which will be released in July by Eternal Death Records.
Dark soundscapes start off the album before going into a heavier musical direction while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with the riffs also bringing in a decent amount of melody as w ell a s the faster sections of the songs also using a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
A great amount of thrash elements can also be heard in the guitar riffing while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the solos and leads being done in an old school extreme metal style as well as the music also adding in death metal influences at times, a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses traces of traditional metal and classical guitars can also be heard briefly and on the closing track the music goes into more of a ritualistic direction.
Omenfilth plays a style of black metal that is very raw, melodic and old school with some elements of death and thrash metal, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover misanthropy, apathy, desolation, heretic wisdom, occult and esoteric themes.
In my opinion Omenfilth are a very great sounding raw, melodic and old school black metal group with some elements of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Shadows Of An Unholy War" and "Under The Scythe of The Infidel". 8/5 out of 10.
