Kabexnuv are a solo project from British Columbia, Canada that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw and atmospheric form of occult black metal and this is a review of his 2015 ep "Crypt Of the Black Solar Order" which was released by Bud Metal Records.
A very distorted and heavy guitar sound starts off the ep giving the music a 90's old school black metal feeling and after a few seconds grim screams start to kick in which also leads to the music getting more fast and raw along with some blast beats before adding in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Elements of thrash can be heard in some of the guitar riffing and when solos and leads are utilized they also add more of an old school metal feeling into the songs and as the ep progresses the music starts mixing in more atmospheric elements into the rawer sections of the tracks and with the exception of the first track the whole ep is mostly instrumental.
Kabexnuv creates another recording that is very true to raw occult black metal while also getting more atmospheric this time around, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Ancient Aryan Occultism that also shows Vedic and Hyperborean roots which also has a touch of Blavatsky and the Thule Society philosophies.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Kabexnuv and if you are a fan of raw and atmospheric occult black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Caverns Of Welesburg". 8.5 out of 10.
