This is a review of a split album between Illinois's Throne Of Sacrilege and Indiana's Impurium called "Unleashing A Cacophony Of Destruction" which was released by Orchestrated Misery Records and we will start off the review with Throne Of Sacrilege a band that plays a very chaotic form of black metal with elements of death metal.
Spoken word samples start off their side of the split before going into a very fast and brutal direction along with blast beats and a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams and after awhile the band brings in a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and after awhile solos and leads are added in the music and they also give the band a more chaotic edge and they also add in ritualistic sound effects on the second track before returning to a heavy and brutal sound as well as adding melody into their musical style while the last track brings in a sample from The Omen Part 3 which adds a more blasphemous edge to the music one the heavy parts start to kick in.
Throne Of Sacrilege take the fastest and heaviest elements of black and death metal to create the sound that is presented on all 3 of their tracks, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover dark, occult and anti christian themes.
In my opinion Throne Of Sacrilege are a very great sounding fast and brutal mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "As the Black Wind Howls".
Next up is Impurium a band that plays a very old school form of black metal.
There side of the split starts out with a very fast and raw black metal sound along with some high pitched screams and blast beats a few seconds later and the music has a mid 80's to early 90's feeling but with a more modern production and after awhile they start bringing in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some death and thrash metal elements and the solos and leads the band uses are very extreme sounding old school metal leads, on the second track dark sounding melodies are added into the music.
Impurium play a very fast and chaotic form of old school black metal which also has elements of death and black metal as well as a decent amount of melody, the production sound s very powerful while the lyrics cover dark, occult and Norse Mythology themes.
In my opinion Impurium are a very great sounding Nordic influenced old school black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "'til Midgard".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of black metal. 8 out of 10.
