Greece's Daemon Of Oa have returned with a new recording which shows the music going for more of a traditional style of Greek black metal and this is a review of their self released 2019 album "Ασέληνος Νύκτα".
A very epic sounding intro starts off the album and also introduces synths and melodic guitar leads onto the recording. The music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's old school Geek style along with the vocals being mostly grim sounding black metal screams and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the songs more of a raw feeling while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Clean vocals can also be heard briefly along with the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody as well as a couple of the tracks also being very long and epic in length, as the album progresses synths also make a return in certain sections of the recording.
On this recording Daemon of Oa goes into more of a 90's Greek black metal style.The production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics are written in a mixture of English and Geek and cover Satanism, Occultism and Anti Christianity themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Daemon Of Oa and if you are a fan of old school Greek black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Archangels Of Antichristian League" "Sigil of Magog" and "Nocturnal Wanderings'. 8 out of 10.
