Split Review :~ Inferno / Devathorn - Zos Vel Thagirion

Czech Republic's purveyors of chaos, Ritual whispering, invocation Inferno and the bringer of wrath, darkness, and liberation Draconian elite Athenian black metal group Devathorn call upon the maddening rays with the brand new split entitled " Zos Vel Thagirion" via World Terror Committee. Mixing black metal with esoteric, obscure, mysterious, introspective passages, dense otherworldly blasting, avant-garde together was always their forte. They both have created a sound as powerfully evil and they intend to abuse us with a punishingly relentless display of rhythms and some overall solid riff, albeit a touch generic for the genre. This is filled with more unearthly, astounding, critical acclaimed, heavy, claustrophobic misery, enigmatic melodies. This new Split is consist with 4 tracks. Indeed they both are the well-established group of bands who can make a full sound and creative and with lots of excellence, ritualistic, hatred, blasphemy in his lyrics, with well crafted, distinct content. After so long in existence, they have gathered a wealth of experience and dark talents, which they liberally pour into their music. "Zos Vel Thagirion" is an infernal and raging metal of blackness. They have been slinging noxious, elevated extreme metal scene. An ever-increasing number of black metal bands feature dissonance and accessibility in equally impressive amounts. Certain black metal bands were able to gain proper attention and actually attempt to cross both realms and unite them under one cohesive effort. Indeed they both are the well-established group of bands who can make a full sound and creative and with a lot of excellence, ritualistic, hatred, blasphemy in his lyrics, with well crafted, distinct content. Aforementioned both bands have poured their musical devotion into a chalice of sulphur flame where it burns with obsidian light. Now I’m straight diving to the point about this new Split.

Their incantations whole compositions are an extremely filthy and unsettling piece of sinister euphoria and unearthly ambiance .when at first I’ve checked out their first excerpt I was just overwhelmed and this split was one of my long awaited, anticipated split off past year. Both bands each and every member are excellent musicians appreciate their unsurpassed quality, ability, and skill. All of their tremendous effort portrayed in this split in a radiant way with excellent diligence and nailed it. After a multiple listen their last studio effort infused me with their Unrelenting, powerful, blasting, overarching, chromatic, chaotic, multi-layered, ultra-dense, ritualistic, monolithic black metal musical style laced with atmospheric vibe just blew me away.T heir's collective wisdom and expels it as almost 32:37 minutes of shadowy artistry. Their musical style has a hypnotic effect and especially ritualistic, esoteric, arcane vibe which adds to the more atmospheric kind of black metal but at the same time, the vocals and other parts of the riffing are straight forward blasphemous simultaneously.

This whole split reflects the grand diversity of sound brought together on this split. It is really not easy to describe their complex musical style. Black Metal with unconventional influences enjoys indeed tend quite popular.A natural synthesis of dissonant sounds and disparate styles all combined in one bold, enlightened display of unbound creativity. Despite the often mysterious ,furious,cacophonous ,heavy and barbarous form of black metal assaults  laced with dark eerie,gloomy  and occult  atmosphere with a lots of segments of slower,mid-paced tempo too where they combine cavernous drum thrashes, melancholic guitars ,previously mentioned all  aspects  enriched this split that is very powerful, strong and excellent all at the same time along with a good  balance  of black metal music, melody and brutality with strangulated, filthy, horrific riffs work and those effective chants simultaneously borrow blackened, gloomy, sinister vibe. They know how to hone their aggression to deal with some grievous wounds. I highly appreciate and embrace this split because of their distinct style.

well, this split's opening track “Azazyel Iscariot” starts with sonic assailment, the obtuse, grotesque, whispering, atmospheric sound followed by an onslaught of tremulous, dark eerie, savage riffs and a wall of blast beating, spectacular drums laced with aggression, deliberate cadence. Their whole composition and musical style are impeccable also borrow great atmosphere. They both have injected ritualistic essence, obscure, arcane, esoteric vibes into blasphemous black metal style. Their musical representation evolves into souls wandering vicious, crushing and ominous wasteland. This whole split gives u pitch-black feel from beginning to the end and I warn you this is a gloomy journey.

This split is filled with a slew of cadence, apocalyptic, squalid, ominous, hellish, crawling, slow but powerful riffs work. Drumming, the percussion line up is bleak, frantic, solid, clattering and powerful. In each track, breathtaking, morbidly delicious, scalding, macabre, soaring riffs, bass lineups matched in a good manner with hellish, devilish chords and horror, mournful sounds are rightly used as an additional uncanny harmonic layer. The most striking thing you’ll notice about the sound of them is the air of darkened auras, occult moods and haunting melodies that quite literally drips from the noise they create. This whole split's sound delivers a dissonant, grim feeling, sinister, occult, gruesome black metal with raw emotion and pure energy. “Zos Vel Thagirion”  endures beauty of black metal. This split indulges strong songwriting and brilliant musicianship. Vocals howling scream, hoarse , immense, inhuman voice and effective chants emerged on this split in a well manner and intertwined perfectly with their utterly  spellbinding,obtuse, mysterious,fully blistering, blasphemous, ritualistic, grandiose  black metal,distant musical style with a lots of melodic,atmospheric,occult,ritualization accompaniment  and  embedded perfectly . Overall you will get sinister, gloomy, desolate, mysterious ambient from this whole split. I really worship and highly cite both bands.

Each song has energy, fluency. Stand out tracks are all of them. Split artwork is atrocious, grisly, indelible. Overall “Zos Vel Thagirion” whole split is Spectacular, engrossing, significant, rich, Spirituality full of evil, Scary shaking of dark vibration. This split sounds so authentic and a truly remarkable sonic journey from beginning to end. Indeed this split is such a true gem. I’ll say this whole split is the aesthetics of black metal.Outstanding another one release so far. This is highly recommended to add it in your collection.If you are looking for something different, epic this pure unadulterated black metal utterance is perfect and it will pull out your soul from your body and take you on a journey into another universe. so, enter the void and I am sure definitely you will come out stronger, darker, gloomier than ever before.
