What’s going on everyone, I’m back with another singles review!
The Seed, The Serpent, The Scythe by KAFIRUN
This is the latest 2021 single by the band and do they kick things off with a BANG! What we have here is a combination of classic Norwegian Style Black Metal combined with elements of hint of Death Metal blaring through those headphones!
What I love about this track is that it features those classic symphonic elements that come with the territory of classic Black Metal with those long drawn out strings in the background, accompanied by that Death Metal flavour of bombastic Drum Patterns and Guitar work!
Also this track is just over 6 minutes long but really doesn’t feel it! It breezes through so quickly because of how well put together the production, instrumentation and overall synchronization are!
I also love how throughout the song you’ll get these melodic mini solos to transition to the next leg of the song (Next Verse etc) and I love it because most bands would feel the need to add something extremely technical or over the top just to compensate for the lack of vocals but here they ‘Glide’ you over track instead of hurting your head with something too complex and unnecessary for a simple transition!
This is definitely a MUST for any fans of both Black and Death metal as it presents the best of both worlds! Don’t miss out and go support them today! –Corban Skipwith
