Ancient Torment are a band from Rhode Island that plays a very raw and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 ep "Satan's Legacy Come Flesh" which will be released in May by Eternal Death.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the ep along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them while the vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
A great amount of 90's influences can also be heard in the band musical style but also keeping it very modern at the same time. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while spoken word parts can also be heard briefly and the riffs also add in a small amount of dark sounding melodies and towards the end a brief use of growls can also be heard.
Ancient Torment plays a style of satanic black metal that is very raw, satanic and traditional sounding. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism and Rites Of Violence and Sex.
In my opinion Ancient Torment are a very great sounding raw and satanic black metal band if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Satan's Legacy Come Flesh" and "EveIn Estrus". 8 out of 10.
