Diktatur are a band from France that plays an aggressive form of black metal with electronic music touches and this is a review of their 2016 ep "L, Agonie d' Un Monde" which was released by MELANCHOLIA RECORDS.
A very heavy guitar sound starts off the ep before speeding up and adding in blast beasts and high pitched black metal screams and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the riffs also use a decent amount of melody while the tremolo picking gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and when synths are utilized they bring in elements of modern electronic music while the heavier riffs also bring in a more current style of black metal and spoken word parts are also used briefly and their is also a brief use of clean singing.
Diktatur plays a style of black metal that is very modern yet raw sounding and also adds in eelments of electronic music to make the genre sound different, the production sounds very raw and powerful while the lyrics are written in French and cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Diktatur are a very great sounding aggressive black metal band with electronic music touches and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Comme Une Ombre" and "L, Agonie d' Un Monde". 8 out of 10.
