Temple Abattoir/Nechronicles/2008/Demo Review

  Temple Abattoir are a band from Spain that plays a raw form of black metal and this is a review of their 2008 demo "Nechronicles".

Drums utilize a mixture of mid paced beats that end up turning into some really fast and brutal blast beats, while the bass playing is mixed down real low in the mix and it is all rhythm bass.

Rhythm guitars are mostly really fast black metal riffs are the mid 90's vein and you can hear some Swedish influences and there is not a guitar lead present on this recording.

Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some occasional deep growls, while the production is very raw sounding which is good for a black metal demo, since I downloaded the demo, I did not end up with a copy of the lyrics, but they seem to touch on some dark topics.

In my opinion this band is good at what they do and this is a good demo and I feel this band needs to record another demo and work on their sound some more which I know that they have it in them. If you are a fan of classic black metal in the mid 90's vein this is a good demo to listen to and it has a very raw and aggressive sound.

Recommended tracks are "Bastards Of Creation" and "VX".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
