Enoquian are a band from Argentina that plays a very raw and old school form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Llamas De Gloria Primera" which was released as a joint effort between Satanath and Morbid Skull Records.
Atmospheric soundscapes start off the album before going into a more heavier and melodic direction along with some grim black metal screams while the faster sections of the songs also use a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music a more raw feeling.
Elements of thrash and death metal can also be heard at times while the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave tradition along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as some nature sounds and field recordings also being added before some of the tracks and he music always remains heavy.
Enoquian plays a style of black metal that is very raw in the 90's tradition while also adding in touches of death and thrash metal, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion Enoquian are a very great sounding raw and old school black metal band with touches of death and thrash metal and if yo are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pordures Perdurables" "Herencia Terrena' and "Equilibrio". 8 out of 10.
