Teitanblood are a band from Spain that plays a mixture of war and bestial black/death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "The Baneful Choir" which was released by NoEvDia.
A very dark and apocalyptic sound starts off the album along with some post apocalypse style synths before going into a heavier musical direction. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic style while bestial death metal growls are also a very huge part of the recording.
Black metal screams are also utilized quite a bit throughout the album along with the riffs also adding in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies. At times the music also captures a cavernous atmosphere while the music also adds in a decent amount of 90's influences but also keeps it very modern at the same time.
During the faster sections of the songs a great amount of war metal elements can also be heard along with a great amount of blast beats and the guitar leads also having their chaotic moments, when tremolo picking is utilized at also gives the songs more of a raw feeling. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Armageddon soundtrack orientated sounds also make a return in certain sections of the recording as well as some of the tracks being very long and epic in length and as the album progresses a couple of brief interludes are also added onto the recording which also gives the music more of a ritualistic atmosphere, all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them and one track also adds in a small amount of Gregorian chants. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness, evil, occultism and abomination themes.
In my opinion Teitenblood are a very great sounding bestial mixture of war, black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Black Veretebrae" "Inhuman Utterings" and "Verdict Of The Dead". 8/5 out of 10.
