Xibalba - Ancient Blasphemies (split with Avzhia)
Review: The first track starts with a self-increasing walkup riff in the style of Led Zeppelin, then falls into noisy and chaotic black metal with melodic underpinnings. This metal uses the rhythms of a Motorhead, Venom and Discharge, and the technique of Celtic Frost and Darkthrone to make basic two-chord riffs and turnarounds fit a galloping rhythm anchored by a bounding bass. Songs are simple of only a couple riffs and with variations in transition, but this style sticks to its roots and makes these songs work through energy coupled to a distilled mood.
