Korgonthurus are a band from Finland that plays a satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Vuohen Siunaus" which was released by Woodcut Records.
A very distorted sound starts off the album before going into a very fast and raw black metal direction t hat uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking along with some high pitched screams while you can also hear a great amount of morbid sounding melodies throughout t he recording and the solos and leads are done in a very chaotic fashion.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and death metal growls can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with that genre also being an influence on some of the riffing and the guitar leads also bring in a decent amount of melody at times while the music builds mostly on a Finnish black metal style and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and a couple of tracks also shows a small amount of acoustic guitars being mixed in with some of the heavy riffing and on some songs the screams bring in more of a depressive tone.
Korgonthurus plays a style of black metal that is very true to the raw Finnish tradition of the genre while also standing out a little bit by mixing in death metal influences on some of the tracks, the production sounds very raw yet heavy at the same time while the lyrics are written in Finnish and cover Satanism and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Korgonthurus are a very great sounding raw satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Kaaos" "Inho" and "L.U.X". 8 out of 10.
