EP Review: SANGUINARY TRANCE Wine, Song and Sacrifice (Independent) by Sarah McKellar

Place of origin: Austria
Genre: Black metal
Label: Independent
Release date: June 14, 2018
Sanguinary Trance is a black metal band from Austria. “Wine, Song and Sacrifice” is their first EP release. A dramatic, chaotic and mournful start catches the listener’s attention immediately. Technically strong musically, combined with brutal vocals provides a level of chaotic energy that is actually very pleasing to listen to. Clashing vocal styles over the consistently chaotic feel provides another really favourable musical element. “Wine, Song and Sacrifice” continues to be consistently oddly melodic throughout this release while a raw feel adds another almost depressive aspect. Sanguinary Trance is technically tight as a whole; their dedication to their music is reflected in the continual technical aspects they display consistently. I enjoyed the melodic, old school yet chaotic approach taken by Sanguinary Trance and look forward to more of their material in the future. -Sarah McKellar
