Satanize are a band from Portugal that plays a bestial mixture of war and black metal and this is a review of their album "Baphomet Altar Worship" which will be released in 2021 as a joint effort between Helter Skelter and Regain Records.
A very fast, raw and brutal war metal 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 dark sounding melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing and the music also shows influences of both the North American and Australian styles.
Most of the music is heavily rooted in an old school style while also mixing in a more modern day aggression. All of the tracks also avoid any use of guitar solos or leads along with one track also adding in a brief use of war samples and all of the music also sticks to a very fast and brutal musical direction.
Satanize plays a style of war/black metal that is always very fast, raw and brutal sounding. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferian, Baphomet Worship, Blasphemy, Darkness, Death and War themes.
In my opinion Satanize are a very great sounding bestial mixture of war and black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Baphomet Altar Worship" "Chariots Of Nocturnal Wrath" "Luciferian Thrones Of Devastation" and "Cavernous Onslaught". 8 out of 10,
