Von are a band from San Francisco that has been featured before in this zine that plays a very raw and primitive form of black metal with a death metal edge and are also one of their first U.S.B.M bands as well as a huge influence on later goat and war metal bands and this is a review of their 2012 album "Satanic Blood" which was released by Von Records and is mostly recorded versions of their old songs from their 90's demo's.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with primitive black metal riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding with a sound that is more ancient then the early Norwegian wave but more evil sounding with some death metal influences being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are very raw and primitive sounding black/death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from deep guttural black/death metal growls to high pitched black metal screams, while the lyrics cover Satanism and Anti Christian themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
I my opinion this is another great recording from Von which takes all of their classic songs and updates them for the modern day and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Jesus Stain" "Dissection InHuman" "satanic Blood" and "Satan". RECOMMENDED BUY.
