Arcano Arconte are a solo project from Brazil that plays a very atmospheric and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Nihil Prater Mortem" which was released by Misanthropic Luciferian Onslaught.
Clean guitars and melodic guitar leads start off the album along with some grim black metal screams that have a whisper type of approach and drum beats that also takes the music into more of a heavier and atmospheric musical direction and the drums also have a tribal feeling in some parts of the songs.
A great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and on the second track the music starts getting a little bit more mid paced and also brings in more of a raw style of black metal along with the screams also getting a little bit more aggressive and the songs stick either to a slow or mid paced musical direction while elements of dark ambient are added into certain sections of the music.
Arcano Arcante plays a style of satanic black metal that is more on the atmospheric side of the genre while also bringing in more of an occult and ritualistic approach to the genre, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in his native tongue and cover Satanism and Misanthropy themes.
In my opinion Arcano Arcante are a very great sounding atmospheric, satanic black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Negative Existencia" and "Alem do Marda". 8 out of 10.
