Temple Abattoir are a band from Spain that h as had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a very aggressive form of occult black metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Cacoangelion" which was released by Vertebrae.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are presented on the recording. When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can also be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling and the tracks also add in a decent amount of 90's influences but keeps it modern at the same time.
Vocals are mostly deep yet grim black metal screams that also get very high pitched sounding at times while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Dark sounding melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing and all of the music also sticks to a heavier direction.
On this recording Temple Abattoir remains true to the traditional style of black metal that they have established on previous releases. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Alchemy, Occultism, Death, Alcohol, Anti Abrahamic Religions and Blasphemy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Temple Abattior and if you are a fan of aggressive and blasphemous occult black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sulphurous Lord (Liturgia chais)" and "Extermination By Fire (Ritus conclusionis)". 8 out of 10.
