Winter Deluge are a band from new Zealand that plays a very vicious and triumphant form of black metal with some elements of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2020 ep "Degradation Renewal" which will be released in April by Osmose Productions.
A very fast, raw and brutal sound starts off the ep which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very aggressive yet melodic style while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with some death metal growls also being utilized at times.
Melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them along with some elements of thrash metal also being utilized at times and the music also adds in a good balance between old school and modern influences, all of the tracks also stick to a very heavy, raw and brutal style.
Winter Deluge plays a very aggressive sounding form of black metal with also adds in some elements of death and thrash metal to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover a disdain of modern society and the destructive nature of the human race.
In my opinion Winter Deluge are a very great sounding vicious and triumphant black metal band with elements of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mass Graves" and "Within The Remnants Of Humanity". 8 out of 10.
