This is a review of another recording from Ecuador's duo Wampyric Rites which shows the music going for a raw and dissonant style of vampyric black metal with elements of medieval dungeon synth and the demo was originally released in 2020 and will be re-issued march, 2023 by Inferna Profundus Records.
A dungeon synth style intro starts off the demo before going into more of a heavier and lo-fi style. When tremolo picking is utilized they also give the songs more of a raw feeling along with some melodies also being added into the guitar riffing at times and the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams.
The music also has its dissonant moments while most of the demo consists of dungeon synth instrumentals which also capture a very medieval style atmosphere. When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard along with the heavier sections of the demo also adding in some influences from the 90's era and guitar leads and clean playing can also be heard briefly.
On this recording Wampyric Rites brought in a decent mixture of both raw, dissonant vampyric black metal tracks and dungeon synth instrumentals. The production sounds very dark, raw and lo-fi while the lyrics cover Vampirism and Darkness themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Wampyric Rites and if you are a fan of raw, dissonant vampyric black metal and medieval dungeon synth, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "II (Los oscuros misterios de la noche)" and "IV (Un espíritu atormentado que no encuentra el descanso eterno)". 8 out of 10.
