Blasphemous Degradation are a duo from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of war and blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2020 demo "Sulphuric Alchemy" which was released as a joint effort between Analog Ragnarok and Born For Burning Productions.
A synth orientated intro starts off the demo giving the music a horror soundtrack atmosphere before going into a heavier direction. Vocals are mostly high pitched and angry sounding black metal screams while the faster sections of the songs bring in a great amount of war metal elements, blast beats and tremolo picking which also gives the recording more of a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very chaotic style along with the music also mixing in elements of blackened death metal and the demo closes with a synth orientated outro
Blasphemous Degradation plays a musical style that takes war and blackened death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover war, discipline, occultism,rituals and demonology themes.
In my opinion Blasphemous Degradation are a very great sounding mixture of war and blackened death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this duo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE 'Sulphuric Alchemy" and "Deified in Hell". 8 out of 10.
