Feretrum are a band from Hungary that plays a very satanic and occult form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2019 album "In The Eternal World".
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some ritualistic spoken word parts also being used briefly. Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams while clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the music more of a raw feeling. A great amount of 90's influences can also be heard in the bands musical style while a couple of the tracks are long and epic in length as well as the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as one track also introducing demonic growls onto the recording and spoken word parts also make a brief return, all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. The production sounds very dark, raw and old school while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism, Darkness and Blasphemy themes.
In my opinion Feretrum are a very great sounding satanic and occult black metal band and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Endless War" "The Dimension Of Satan" and "Let All of Them Get Rotten". 8 out of 10.
