Veldraveth are a band from Venezuela that plays a very raw and satanic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Malformations For God" which was released on cassette by Iron County Records.
A very distorted sound along with blast beats start off the song as well as adding in some heavy riffing and death metal growls and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking can be heard.
During the faster sections of the songs the music brings in a very raw black metal feeling and you can also hear a small amount of melody in some of the riffing and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion .
A lot of the music also mixes in a great amount of old school death metal elements while black metal screams can also be heard at times and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and there is also a brief use of female vocals while a later song brings in a brief use of rain and thunder sounds and all of the songs also stick to a heavy musical direction.
Veldraveth plays a musical style that takes second wave black metal and old school death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism, Anti Religion, Darkness, Violence and War themes.
In my opinion Veldraveth are a very great sounding 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 "In Chaos Born" "Ominous Omen" "Thunderstorms" and "Murder". 8 out of 10.
