Asagraum are a band from the Netherlands that plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Dawn of Infinite Fire" which will be released in September by Edged Circle Productions.
Ritualistic soundscapes start off the album before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the vocals being mostly grim sounding black emtal screams.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the music also brings in a decent amount of 90's influences. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style as well as some of the riffing also adding in melody at times and on the closing track clean vocals are added into the music.
Asagraum plays a style of occult black metal that is very raw, melodic and traditional sounding. The production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics are written in a mixture of Dutch and English cover Satanism and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Asagraum are a very great sounding occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "They Crawl From The Broken Circle" "Dawn Of Infinite Fire" and "Hate Of Satan's Hammer". 8 out of 10.
