Brazil's Marozia have returned with a new recording which continues the raw black metal style of previous releases and this is a review of 2018 ep "A Vida Cobra" which was released by Kill The Cult Leader Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep along with the riffs also utilizing melodies at times while the faster sections of the songs also use a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Vocals are mostly grim black metal screams while the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's along with some spoken word samples also being utilized briefly as well as the songs also bringing in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very raw and melodic style.
Marozia creates another recording that remains true to the raw and old school style of black metal from previous releases, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Portuguese and cover personal and subjective feelings.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Marozia and if you are a fan of raw and old school black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "A Vida Cobra". 8 out of 10.
