Kratornas are a solo project from Philippines that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of brutal black metal and grindcore and this is a review of his 2016 album "Devoured By Damnation" which will be released in December by Grathila Records.
A powerful sounding bass guitar starts off the album before adding in more of a heavy and fast sound along with some blast beats along with some black metal screams and the music also brings in elements of bestial and war metal and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very raw and chaotic style and deep growls can also be heard at times and you can also hear a great amount of grindcore and old school death metal influences throughout the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the whole album also remains very heavy, raw and brutal from beginning to ending of the recording.
Kratornas creates another recording that takes bestial black and war metal and mixes it in with some death metal and grindcore elements to create a very brutal sounding album, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover Satanism and Blasphemous themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Kratornas and if you are a fan of grindcore influenced bestial war/black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Spit On God" "Blood Of The Devil" "Cadavers Of Gods' and "World Within Demons". 8 out of 10.
