Xharathorn/Immemorial Atlantic Veneration/New Goetia/Requiem Records/1996 CD Review


  Xharathorn  where  a  band  from  Spain  that  played  a  very  grim,  raw  and  primitive  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  1996  album  "Immemorial  Atlantic  Veneration"  which  was  released  by  New  Goetia/Requiem  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  thrown  into  the  music  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  is  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sounding  in  the  true  90's  fashion  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  anywhere on  this  recording.

  Vocals  are  all  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams,  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  a  mixture  of  Spanish  and  English  and  cover  dark  poetic  Basque  themes  with  a  touch  of  Dante,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  Xharathorn  where  a  very  great  sounding  grim,  raw  and  primitive  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  style  of  music,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Poderes"  and  "The  Unhead  Dismal  Cry  Of  A  Self-Abnegated  Monarch".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
