Sheidim are a band from Spain that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very heavy and aggressive mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Infamata" which will be released in September by I, Voidhanger Records.
Dark, heavy and melodic riffing starts off the ep and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody and whispers are also used briefly and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
Vocals add in touches of first wave black metal along with some screams and death metal growls while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with clean playing and ritualistic spoken word parts also being added into certain sections of the recording as well as some of the tracks being very long and epic in length and you can also hear a great amount of Swedish influences throughout most of the tracks.
Sheidim creates another recording that remains true to the raw and melodic mixture of black and death metal from their previous release, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sheidim and if you are a fan of raw and melodic black/death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Dying Sun" and "Sister Of Sleep". 8 out of 10.
