Deviltook are a band from Spain that plays a very anti religious and Nordic inspired form of old school black metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 album "At War With Gods".
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave Norwegian tradition and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
A small amount of dark sounding melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing while one track also introduces clean playing onto the recording. Some tracks also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the guitar leads also being done in a very melodic style when they are utilized, cinematic sounds can also be heard briefly on a couple of tracks as well as the music focusing more on a heavier or raw style.
Deviltook plays a style of black metal that is very raw and old school in the early 90's tradition. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the lies caused by the Christian religion.
In my opinion Deviltook are a very great sounding raw and old school black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "We Prefer To Die" "The Throne Of Lies" "Addicts of Faith" and "In The Hands Of Charon". 8 out of 10.
