Karcavul are a band from France that plays a mixture of raw black metal, sludge, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Intersaone" which was released by Sentinent Ruin Laboratories.
Drones and avant garde sounds start off the ep along with a very demonic atmosphere and spoken word samples and after a minute the music goes into a heavier musical direction along with some grim black metal screams and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
When the music slows down a great amount of sludge and doom metal elements can be heard along with some morbid sounding melodies and death metal growls and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with most of the tracks being very long and epic in length and the music also brings in elements of crust and raw bestial black metal.
Karcavul plays a musical style that takes the rawest elements of black, death metal, doom, sludge and crust and mixes them together to create a very dark and raw sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion Karcavul are a very great sounding raw, dark and heavy mixture of black, death, doom metal, sludge and crust and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Illuminaschichs". 8 out of 10.
