Morketida are a band from Finland that plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Panphage Mysticism" which will be released in August by Werewolf Records.
A very distorted organ intro starts off the album before going into a heavier direction while the riffs also bring in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies along with the faster sections of the songs also using a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
Vocals are mostly grim black metal screams 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 as well as the organs also being mixed in the heavier sections of the music at times and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic style and they also bring in an instrumental.
Morketida plays a style of occult black metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's while going for the less popular mid paced direction of that era to create something different, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion Morketida are a very great sounding occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Invoking The Seventh Moon" and "Temple Of Prevailing Darkness". 8 out of 10.
