Von/Satanic Blood Angel/Nuclear War Now Productions/2002 Demo Re-Issue CD Review

  Von are a band from San Francisco, California that where one of the originators of usbm and goat metal and this is a review of their demo compilation "Satanic Blood Angel: which was released in 2002 by Nuclear War Now Productions.

Drums range from slow, mid paced fast playing with a good amount of blast beats being thrown in the music, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with primitive riffs that dominate throughout the recording.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast, primitive and basic sounding early 90's style black metal riffs that utilize a good amount of death metal influence and some ocassional dark sounding melodies, while the lead guitars are very distorted and primitive sounding black/death metal guitar solos and leads.

Vocals are mostly deep black/death growls that sound very guttural with some mournful cries and spoken word parts being thrown in at times, while the lyrics cover satanic and anti christian themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it with some songs being recorded live.

In my opinion Von where a very great sounding influential black/death/goat metal band and if you are a fan of this band, you probably already own this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Devil Pig" "Watain" "Satanic Blood" and "Chalice Of Blood". RECOMMENDED BUY.
