Deviser are a band from Greece that plays a very melodic and atmospheric style of Greek black metal and this is a review of their 1996 album "Unspeakable Cults" which was re-issue in 2016 by Sleszy Rider Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some atmospheric synths and ritualistic spoken word parts and when the music speeds up it uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which gives the music more of a raw feeling and high pitched black metal screams are added onto the recording.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and clean singing female vocals can also be heard in certain sections of the recording as well as a brief use of growls and some songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing while some riffs also bring in a touch of thrash and they also bring in an instrumental track before returning back to vocal songs and whispers can also be heard briefly and they close the album with an acoustic outro.
Deviser plays a style of black metal on this recording that was very raw, atmospheric and melodic in the classic Greek tradition, the production sounds very powerful for the era it was recorded while the lyrics cover abstract, divine, other worlds, Lovecraft, Occultism, and Anti Religion themes.
In my opinion Deviser are a very great sounding raw, melodic and atmospheric, occult Greek black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Darkness Incarnate" "The Rape Of Holiness" "The Fore Burning Bright" and "Forbidden Knowledge". 8 out of 10.
