Rapture Messiah are a band from Mexico that plays a very raw and old school form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2019 ep "Antithesis black Metal Commando".
A very heavy, r aw and old school sound starts off the album along with some angry sounding black metal screams a few seconds alter. When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard while the music mixes in both first and second wave influences.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads are done in a very dark and melodic style. The riffs also add in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies along with some spoken word parts also being used briefly, all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and all of the music sticks to a heavier direction.
Rapture Messiah plays a style of black metal that goes back to the mid 80's and early 90's era of the genre. The production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover Satanism, Darkness, Evil and Death themes.
In my opinion Rapture Messiah are a very great sounding raw and old school black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unstoppable Evil Powers"and "March With Satan". 8 out of 10.
