This is the final review of a recording from Venezuela's Impery which shows the music going into more of an old school, satanic, occult and blasphemous black metal direction and the album was originally released in 2019 and called "Cristo Fue Mortal" which was re-issued in 2020 by Entocomophobic Records.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking. Vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams while all of the drum beats are also programmed as well as some dark sounding melodies also being added into some of the guitar riffing.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while t he music also brings in a decent amount of 90's influences. A couple of tracks also captures the atmosphere of a classic horror movie and introduces evil sounding spoken word parts onto the recording before returning back to a heavier direction.
Demonic growls can also be heard in some parts of the recording and also add in a touch of death metal along with all of the musical instruments on the recording also having a very powerful sound to them, a couple of the tracks are also instrumentals one of which also brings a brief use of clean playing onto the album and the recording closes with a cover of Sagoth's "Su Majestad Lucier". The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferian, occult, Anti Christianity and Blasphemous themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Impery and if you are a fan of old school. occult, satanic and blasphemous black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Derribo El Crucifijo" "No Hay Vida Eterna, No Hay Tierra Prometida" and "Su Majestad Lucier". 8 out of 10.
