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.
