Crurifragium are a band from Seattle, Washington that plays a bestial mixture of war, black and death metal and this is a review of their 2018 compilation album "Black Seed Of Bestiality" which will be released in June by Larval Productions and consists of their 2015 demo and 2017 full length "Beasts Of The Temple Of Satan".
Ritualistic sounding keyboards start off the compilation along with some demonic voices a few seconds later which also leads to a heavier direction and when the music speeds up it goes into a very fast and raw war metal direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats as well as some bestial growls.
Throughout the compilation you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while grim black metal screams are also used at times along with the solos and leads being done in a very chaotic fashion as well as the music being very heavily rooted in the 90's and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the music always remains very heavy and raw.
Crurifragium plays a musical style that takes the rawest forms of war, black and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and raw along with some songs being recorded live while the lyrics cover Satanism and Blasphemy themes.
In my opinion Crucifragium are a very great sounding raw and bestial mixture of war, black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Horns Of Power" "Deformed Lamb" and "Slaughterers of The Flock". 8 out of 10.
