Pimeydentuoja are a band from Finland that plays a bestial mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Devil's Epoch" which was released by Misanthropic Arts Productions.
A very heavy and aggressive sound starts off the album along with some bestial growls a few seconds later and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and you can also hear a lot of war metal elements in the bands musical style while t he riffs also use a great amount of morbid sounding melodies.
High pitched black metal s creams can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very chaotic war metal fashion while also having their melodic moments and throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Some of the tracks also bring in samples from horror movies along with a brief use of synths and one track also brings in a small amount of ritualistic spoken word parts and the fast riffs also use a great amount of tremolo picking which also gives the songs more of a raw black metal feeling and they close the album with a cover of Impaled Nazarene's "I Al Purg Vonpo/Mt Blessing (The Beginning Of the End)".
Pimeydentuoja plays a musical style that takes a very raw and bestial style of black/war metal and mixes it with death metal to create some very heavy yet dark music, the production sounds very dark and raw yet heavy at the same time while the lyrics cover blasphemy, demons, Satanic Rites and Anti Christianity themes.
In my opinion Pimeydentuoja are a very great sounding bestial mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "By Death We Shall Conquer" "The Devil's Epoch" "Awakening Of the Ancient King" and "Morbid Sacrifice". 8 out of 10.
