Mormant De Snagov/Derisive Philosophy/Pest Records/2013 CD Review


  Mormant  De  Snagov  are  a  band  from  Finland  that  plays  a  very  heavy  and  grim  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  album  "Derisive  Philosophy"  which  was  released  by  Pest  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  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  traditional  black  metal  riffs  that  utilize  some  melody,  primitive  elements,  death  metal  influences  and  some  progressive  elements,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  sounding  black  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads,  as  for the  acoustic  guitars w hen  they  are  utilized  they  use  finger  picking  and  full  chords  to  add  some  progressive  elements  to  the  recording.

  Vocals  range  from  grim  sounding  and  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  to  deep growls,  while  the  lyrics  cover  philosophical,  occult,  and  blasphemous  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  and  heavy  sound  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.
  
  In  my  opinion  Mormant  De  Snagov a re  a  very  great  sounding  heavy  and  grim  black  metal band  with  a  death  metal  edge  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Comatose"  "Abnormities"  and  "The  Triumph".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
