Sacrilegium are a band from Poland that has had music reviewed in this zine with their musical style being more in a pagan/black metal direction and this is a review of their 2015 single "Angelus" which will be released on December 28th by Pagan Records and there are also plenty of re-mixes on the recording.
Dark and atmospheric sounding synths start off the single giving the music a very epic feeling and after a few seconds it starts mixing in with a more heavy and melodic sound which also introduces grim black metal screams onto the recording and the solos and leads also utilize a great amount of melody.
You can hear a touch of classic metal at times and when the music speeds up it goes into more of a raw and old school black metal direction which also introduces blast beats onto the recording and they also do re-mixes of the same track with In Slaughter Natives being the first one and they give the music more of a militant industrial feeling while the re-mixes from Zenial, ROD and Echoes Of Yul bring in elements of experimental, avant garde, folk music, dubstep and post rock while the demo version has more of a raw approach to the song.
Sacrilegium takes one song that is mostly a raw and melodic black metal and mange to make a lot of different musical genres work in the same song with all of the re-mixes, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding recording from Sacrilegium and if you are a fan of this band or the many styles of electronic music, you should check out this single. 8 out of 10.
