Nocturnal are a band from Poland that plays a very raw and primitive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2005 album "Unholycraft - Blood For Glory Of Satan" which was released as a joint effort between Black Plague Records and God Is Myth 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 old school tradition, while the lead guitars when they are utilized briefly are very raw and primitive sounding black metal guitar solos and leads
Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams with some samples being thrown into the music at times, while the lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferian, Heretical, Darkness, Evil and Anti Christian themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Nocturnal are a very great sounding raw and primitive satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Pack Of Lucifer - Eternal Legion Of Evil" "The Heretic Mass - Plague... Spit On It' and "Deep Within Enchanted Lands". RECOMMENDED BUY.
