Gexerott are a band from Columbia that plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of their 2021 album "Hallecinetic Violet Ignition" which will be released on April 18th as a joint effort between Satanath and Exhumed Records.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the album along with some ritualistic soundscapes and police sirens before going into a heavier musical direction. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while dark sounding melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing.
Vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams while clear singing can also be heard at times. When the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling along with the solos and leads being done in a very dark yet melodic style.
Clean playing can also be heard on some of the tracks along with a couple of songs also being brief interludes. A couple of the songs are also long and epic in length as well as some acoustic guitars also being utilized briefly, there is also a brief use of death metal growls on a few songs which are also done in a very demonic style and melodic chants and vocals can also be heard briefly and as the album progresses a small amount of ritualistic spoken word parts and synths can also be heard. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Chaos Gnosticism, Occultism, Qabala and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Gexerott are a very great sounding occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hallecinetic Violet Ignition" "EgoKinesis" and "Inseminated". 8/2 out of 10.
