Sanguinary Trance are a band from Austria that plays a very frantic and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2018 ep "Wine, Song And Sacrifice".
An almost silent sound starts off the ep before going into more of a darker and heavier musical direction along with the solos and leads also being done in a very dark and melodic style while the first track is over 13 minutes in length as well as some clean playing also being used briefly.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can also be heard which also gives the songs a more raw feeling while the vocals are a mixture of deep and high pitched black metal screams along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and psychedelic and experimental elements are added onto the closing track which is also an instrumental.
Sanguinary Trance plays a style of black metal, that is very raw, melodic and experimental sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover personal experiences and interpretation along with some inspiration from the writings of Georges Bataille and the philosophies of the Order Of Nine Angles.
In my opinion Sanguinary Trance are a very great sounding frantic and melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should c heck out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Carvings". 8/5 out of 10.
