Death Fortress/Pulling Ancient Stone/Fallen Empire/Mordgrimm/2012 Demo Review


  Death  Fortress  are  a  band  from  New  Jersey  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  with  a  musical  style  that  I  would  describe  as  being  raw  and  primitive  sounding  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  demo  "Pulling  Ancient  Stone"  which  was  released  as  a  joint  effort  between  Fallen  Empire  and  Mordgrimm.

  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  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sounding  with  some  atmospheric  elements  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording.

  Vocals  range  from  deep  demonic  growls  to  high  pitched  black  metal  screams,  while  the  lyrics  cover  pride  and  domination,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  with  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  demo  from  Death  Fortress  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  atmospheric,  raw  and  primitive  sounding  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Eternal  Enemies".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
