Panchrysia are a band from Belgium that plays a very modern and traditional form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Dogma" which was released by Satanath Records.
Drum beats along with some melodic yet heavy riffing starts off the album and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the vocals are done in a mixture of shouts and black metal screams as well as the tremolo picking giving the songs a more raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also h ear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style as well as some songs also adding in spoken word parts and one track also adds in a brief use of middle eastern style instruments before returning back to a heavier direction and as the album progresses a brief use of atmospheric sounds can also be heard and on the closing track early 20th century music samples can be heard briefly.
Panchrysia plays a style of black metal that is very modern yet retains a lot of the more classic traditional sound of the genre, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and mythological themes.
In my opinion Panchrysia are a very great sounding modern black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Each Against All" "War With Heaven" and "Rats". 8 out of 10.
