Rex Mundi are a band from France that plays a very occult form of black metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "IHVH" which was released by Debmbr Morti Productions.
Drums range from slow to mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown in at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars, as for the synths which are only used briefly they bring a very dark and avant garde to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding with an avant garde edge at times as well as some occasional thrash and death metal style riffing and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some deep growls being thrown in at times as well as a brief spoken word part being utilized on one song, while the lyrics cover Occultism and the Caballa, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sounding without being too under produced.
In my opinion Rex Mundi are a very good occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this group. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Naphtali" "Pious Angels (Sefer Seraphim" and "Raising My Temples". RECOMMENDED BUY.
