Throne Ov Blood are a band with members from the United States and Mexico that plays a very raw and violent form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Corrupted by Darkness" which was released by American Line Productions.
A very dark and ritualistic sounding intro starts off the ep along with some synths and throat singing before going into a heavier musical direction. Vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking which also gives the music more of a raw fleeing.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the music also brings in a great amount of 90's influences. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark yet melodic style along with one track also introducing clean playing onto the recording.
Ritualistic sounds also make a brief return on one of the later tracks before returning back to a heavier direction and at times the riffs also add in a small amount of melody and as the album progresses a brief use of acoustic guitars can also be heard on a couple of songs. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness, evil, occultism and satanism themes.
In my opinion Throne Ov Blood are a very great sounding raw and violent black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Invokation of Evil" "Kvlt Ov The Goat" "Screams From Abyss" and "Goat Nation 666". 8 out of 10.
