Nordjevel are a band from Norway that plays a very fast and aggressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Necrogenesis" which will be released in March by Osmose Productions.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and brutal sounding blast beats. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while the riffs also add in a decent amount of melody as well as the music also bringing in a more modern Norwegian style.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them along with the songs also adding in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very chaotic yet melodic style and the fast riffs also capturing the aggression of the mid 90's era.
On one of the tracks clean guitars are also introduced onto the recording briefly as well as one song also adding in spoken word parts. Atmospheric elements can also be heard as the album progresses while keeping the main focus more on an aggressive style and there is also a brief use of melodic chants on one song, the closing track is very long and epic in length. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, self destruction, nature and anti religion themes.
In my opinion Nordjevel are a very great sounding fast and aggressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sunset Glow" "Black Lights From The Void" "Nazarene Necrophilia" and "Panzerengel". 8 out of 10.
