Vampyric Burial are a duo from Maryland that plays a very raw and lo-fi form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 demo "Rites Ov Gloriovs Heretical Exhvmation" which was released by Apo Kosmos Khaos Productions.
A very dark, heavy and lo-fi sound starts off the demo while the vocals are mostly grim yet high itched black metal screams. Distorted amp noise can also be heard briefly as well as some dark sounding melodies also being utilized and times and the tremolo picking also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard while the music is also very heavily influenced by the mid 90' demo style of black metal. All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them as well as the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when synths are utilized they bring in elements of dark ambient.
Vampyric Burial plays a style of black metal that is very raw and lo-fi sounding. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Vampirism, Lycanthropy, Mythology and Folklore themes.
In my opinion Vampyric Burial are a very great sounding raw and lo-fi black metal duo and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Drowning In Hideous Lupine Shadows" and "Storm Recalls The Blood of The Wolf". 8 out of 10.
