Law Of Contagion are a solo project from Portugal that plays an occult mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of his 2020 album "Woeful Litanies From the Nether Realms" which will be released on August 20th by Moribund Records.
Drum beats start off the album along with some heavy riffing a few seconds later while the vocals are mostly death metal growls, When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw black metal feeling.
The music also adds in a good combination of both old school and modern influences while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic style along with the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody, one of the tracks is also very long and epic in length and the while album also always sticks to a very heavy and raw musical direction and some of the riffing also shows an influence of thrash metal.
Law Of Contagion plays a musical style that takes an occult form of black emtal and mixes it with death metal to create a sound of his own. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Occultism, Luciferian and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Law of Contagion is a very great sounding occult mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "ov Evil" "Ancient Obscenities" and "Mors Ultima Ratio". 8 out of 10.
