Mephorash are a band from Sweden that plays a very dark, raw and primitive form of satanic/occult black metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "Death Awaits" which was released by Grom Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast blasts being thrown into the music, while the sound effects which are used on the intro and outro bring a very dark occult, ritualistic avant garde feeling to the music with some piano being thrown in, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they sound very powerful.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding with some death metal influences being mixed in, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very dark sounding guitar solos and leads that utilize some melodies.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with a brief use of deep growls, while the lyrics cover Darkness, Evil, Satanism and Occultism, as for the production it has a very dark raw and primitive sound to it.
In my Opinion Mephorash are a very good raw and primitive sounding satanic/occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Black Path" and "Death Awakens". RECOMMENDED BUY.
