Bane are a band from Serbia that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style I would describe as being fast and aggressive sounding atmospheric black metal with a death metal edge and this is a review of their 2012 album "The Acausal Fire" which was released by Abyss Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the synths they are only used on the outro and they bring a dark and atmospheric sound to t he music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that capture atmosphere without using synths and keyboards along with a great amount of dark sounding melodies and death metal influences being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding black metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars which are only utilized briefly they use full chords and finger picking to enhance the darkness that is coming out of the music.
Vocals range from deep blackened death metal growls and high pitched black metal screams as well as a brief use of clean singing, while the lyrics cover satanic, occult, dark, violent and hateful themes, as for the production it has a very strong and powerful sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is another great recording from Bane and if you are a fan of their previous efforts, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The End Of Humanity" "World Of Desolation" and "Nights Blood" which is a Dissection cover. RECOMMENDED BUY.
