Irdorath are a band from Austria that plays an extreme form of black metal mixed in with some death metal influences and melody and this is a review of their 2012 album "Dekonstrukteur Des Fleisches" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast playing 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 keyboards when they are utilized they bring a very dark and atmospheric feeling to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are not raw or primitive at all with some influences from death and thrash metal mixed in with a good amount of dark melodies as well as a brief use of soft and clean playing while the lead guitars are very dark and melodic sounding guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some deep growls being thrown in at times, while the lyrics are written in German and cover darkness, death and damnation, as for the production it has a very strong and powerful sound to it.
In my opinion Irdorath are a good band for their style of black metal and while this is not my favorite style of the genre I still feel the band does it well and if you are a fan of black metal that is more catchy with a more modern metal sound, you should check out this band.
