Perverticon are a band from Sweden that plays a very raw, melodic and old school form of black metal and this is a review of their album "Wounds Of Divinity" which will be released in 2019 by Iron Bonehead Productions.
A very dark and ritualistic sound starts off the album before going into a heavier direction while the riffs also add in a decent amount of melody along with 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.
Vocals a re mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as some clean playing also being added into certain sections of the recording, one track also adds in a brief use of spoken word samples and the music is very heavily rooted in the Swedish style of the genre and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses a brief use of growls, chants, and melodic guitar leads can also be heard.
Perverticon plays a style of black metal that is very raw and melodic sounding in the mid 90's Swedish tradition, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Anti Christianity, Murder, Sex and Extinction themes.
In my opinion Perverticon are a very great sounding raw, melodic and old school black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Thirsting For Ruin" "The Cause Of Absolution" "Breath Of Sulphur_Aura Of Flies" and "Holy Gifts From Skinless Hands". 8 out of 10.
