Astaroth/Anti Christ/Horizon Productions/2013 Demo Review


  Astaroth  are  a  band  from  the  United  States  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  with  a  musical  style  that  I  would  describe  as  being  atmospheric,  raw  and primitive  sounding  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  demo  "Antichrist"  which  was  released  by  Horizon  Productions.

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

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  atmospheric  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sounding  with  some  melody  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  and  there  are  no guitar  solos  and  leads  present  on  this  recording.

  Vocals a re  all  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams,  while  the  lyrics  cover  Darkness,  Occultism,  and  Left  Hand  Path  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it  in the  old  school  black  metal  tradition.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Astaroth  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  atmospheric,  raw  and primitive  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  demo.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "The  Black  Goat"  and  "Antichrist".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
