Nox Desperatio are a band from Venezuela that plays a very raw and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Anima Vita Morte" which was re-issued on cassette in 2018 by Unpleasant Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while the drum beats are programmed along with the riffs also bringing in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies as well as the vocals being mostly grim black metal screams and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them as well as some demonic growls also being used briefly and throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style and a couple of tracks also introduces clear vocals and clean playing onto the recording.
Nox Desperatio plays a style of black metal that is very raw, melodic and agonizing sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Death and cover death themes.
In my opinion Nox Deperatio are a very great sounding raw and melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lux ferre" and "El ultimo umbral". 8 out of 10.
