Hegeroth are a band from Poland that plays a very melodic, old school and dissonant form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 album "Perfidia" which will be released in November.
A very fast, raw and melodic sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with the vocals being mostly grim black metal screams and synths can also be heard in the background at times.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the music is also very heavily rooted in both the Swedish and second wave style of the genre. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style along with the dissonant elements also giving the songs more of a modern atmosphere.
The vocals also getting more deep sounding in some parts of the recording along with a couple of tracks also introducing spoken word word parts onto the album as well as one of the songs also adding in a small amount of clean playing. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Hegeroth are a very great sounding old school, melodic and dissonant black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Distorted Visions Of The Saints" "Sacrificed" and "An Angel Wont Come". 8 out of 10.
