Nocturnes Mist are a band from Australia that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a very old school form of satanic occult black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Marquis Of Hell" which will be released in June by Seance Records.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the album along with a brief use of demonic voices before going into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams. A great amount of 90's influences can also be heard in t he bands musical style along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while synths can also be heard in certain sections of the recording. A couple of the tracks are long and epic in length along with some songs also adding in a small amount of clean playing. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Demonology, Occultism and Blasphemy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Nocturnes Mist and if you are a fan of old school, satanic and occult black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Eyes in Fear" "Wolves Of Satan" and "Treacherous Ways". 8 out of 10.
