Kafirun are a band from Vancouver B.C, Canada that has been featured before in this zine and goes for more of a bestial black metal sound and the new recording and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "Glorification Of Holy Death".
Clean playing starts off the ep and a few seconds later the music starts going for more of a raw black metal sound along with some grim and high pitched screams and there are also some angry shouts being utilized at times along with a small touch of melodic vocals and on the second track the music speeds up quite a bit and also brings in a great amount of blast beats.
You can hear a lot of bestial black metal elements in the fast riffing while the vocals focus more on a traditional style of the genre and seem to be more Swedish influenced than anything and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and some of the later tracks also bring in a small amount of melodies while some of the later ones also add in depressive screams.
Kafirun creates another raw and chaotic black metal ep with this recording and also adds in a touch of war and bestial black metal into their fast, aggressive an traditional approach to this genre and they still can add in melodies where they are needed, the production sounds very raw yet heavy at the same time while the lyrics cover chaos, death and anti religion themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Kafirun and if you are a fan of fast and aggressive black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Salvation Through Sin" and "Open Veins". 8 out of 10.
