Korgonthurus are a band from Finland that has been featured before in this zine and plays a satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Kuolleestasyntynyt" which was released by Woodcut Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while the vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams. At times the music also has its melodic and atmospheric moments and during the faster sections of the songs a great amount of blast beats can also be heard.
When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the music more of a raw feeling while the music also shows influences of both the old school and modern styles. A great portion of the tracks are also very long and epic in length along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark yet melodic style as well as one track also introducing deeper vocals onto the recording along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them, clean playing and classical guitars can also be heard briefly on the closing track. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Finnish and cover Satanism and Darkness themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Korgonthurus and if you are a fan of satanic black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tuhontuoja" and "Nox". 8 out of 10.
