A dark grim reaper sitting down or unmoving in a field of grass, and a half shown moon in a cloud filled dark sky- if the demo cover isn’t enough to give you the shivers, then surely the songs will.
The band has its root from Belarus and is underground as anything. Staražytnaje licha is the 2015 demo release by the band and it kicks major ass in the blackened death metal music.
The drumming in the album is just raw and insane. I couldn’t be happier than this blast filled, unadulterated drumming. The demo has 4 songs: and it begins with a nine minute long song: blast of drums, growl of vocals, and a flourish of trumpets in the midway of the song. The guitar is distorted and dropped down, and can I just say the riffs are monstrous? The song ends with a soothing arpeggio.
“Staražytnaje licha” is the next track and the title track of the demo and the blast and fury of guitar and drums follows on as usual. “Kamunija ahniom” is a personal favorite track of the whole demo. Too bad the lyrics are in Native language, and isn’t in English. The songs just speaking from the musical composition point of view are dense, dark, complicated and fucking brilliant!
This is one of the best black/ death metal demos that came out recently and should be a must listen for any extreme metal fan out there. So what are you waiting for?
