Mexico's Ragnell have returned with a new recording which continues their mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Rebirth in Darkness" which was released as a joint effort between Satanath, The End Of time Records and More Hate Productions.
Clean guitar playing starts off the album before going into a heavier direction while the solos and leads are done in a melodic style. Vocals are a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams along with the faster sections of the songs also using a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffs also using a decent amount of melody. Keyboards can also be heard in some parts of the music while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Whispered vocals can also be heard in some parts of the music while a couple of tracks also introduces clean singing and spoken word parts onto the recording and as the album progresses clean playing also makes a brief return. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover anti religion, evil and violence themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ragnell and if you are a fan of black and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ablaze in The Altar (Of Sacrifice)" "Dethrone" "Aeterna Victoria" and "Holy Center Of Worship, "To Burn". 8 out of 10.
