Bubonic Cult are a band from Brazil that plays a very raw and orthodox form of black metal and this is a review of t heir self released 2016 ep "Negative Aura of Satanic Energy".
A very raw black metal sound starts off the ep along with a decent amount of tremolo picking and after a few seconds high pitched screams make their presence known on the recording along with the riffs also bringing in a small amount of melody and blast beats can be heard in the faster sections of the songs.
Most of the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and there is only a brief use of guitar solos or leads which are very dark and melodic sounding while the main focus is more on a very raw and old school style and the last track is all instrumental.
Bubonic Cult plays a style of orthodox black metal that is very raw and old school in the second wave tradition, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism, Chaosophia, and Death themes.
In my opinion Bubonic Cult are a very great sounding raw, orthodox black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Negative Aura Of Satanic Energy" and "As The Rats Feast Upon Bones". 8 out of 10.
