Chephreon/Necromancy/Forever Dead Records/2019 Full Length Review

  Chepreon  are  a  band  from  Finland  that  plays  a  mixture  of  black,  thrash  and  speed metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2019  album  "Necromancy"  which  will  be released  in  August  by  Forever  Dead  Records.

  A  keyboard  orientated  intro  starts  off  the album  and  also  brings  in  the  atmosphere  of  a  classic  horror  before  soundtrack  before  going  into  a  heavier  direction.  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  dark,  melodic  and  old school  style  along  with  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  also  adding  in  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  which  also  gives  the  music  more  of  a  raw  feeling.

  Vocals  are  mostly  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  while  the  music  also  mixes  in  some  elements  of  the  80's  first  wave  era  and  thrash  metal  but  with  a  more  up  to  date  approach.  Keyboards  and  pianos  also  make  a  brief  return  in  some  parts  of  the  music  as  well  as  the riffs  also  adding  in  a  decent  amount  of  dark  sounding  melodies.

  Influences  of  speed  metal  are  also  utilized  at  times  as  well  as  the  songs  also  adding  in  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  a  couple  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length,  all  of  the  musical  instruments  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  as  the  album  progresses  a  brief  use  of  classical  guitars  can  also be  heard.  The  production  sounds  very  raw  and  old  school  while  the  lyrics  cover  the  decadence  of  western  culture,  paganism, occultism  and  philosophical  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Chephreon  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  black,  thrash  and  speed  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Necromancy"  and  "Vampress  Of  The  Dark  Gods".  8  out  of  10.
