Deviser are a band from Greece that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very melodic and atmospheric form of Greek black metal and this is a review of their 2019 ep "Howling Flames" which was released by Sleaszy Rider Records.
Dark soundscapes start off the ep along with some epic sounding synths a few seconds later. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style along with the vocals also adding in more of a deep black metal style that is very close to the 90's style without sounding outdated.
A decent amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing along with some grim screams also being used at times. When the music speeds up blast beats can also be heard as well as some stringed instruments also being utilized briefly as well as both of the tracks being very long and epic in length and you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, spoken word parts and acoustic guitars can also be heard briefly on the closing song.
On this recording Deviser remains true to the melodic and atmospheric style of Greek black metal from previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Luciferian, Occultism and Evil themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Deviser and if you are a fan of atmospheric and melodic Greek black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Where Evil Dwells". 8 out of 10.
