Hierarchy - Hierarchy - Reviewed By A DIFFERENT SHADE OF BLACK METAL ZINE ! Check it out here at this link: https://darkdoomgrinddeath.blogspot.com/2020/12/hierarchyself-titled2021-full-length.html
Hierarchy are a band from New York that plays a very melodic and blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their self titled and self released album which will be released in 2021.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while the faster sections of the songs also add in great amount of blast beats. Melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing along with the vocals being mostly black metal screams and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's death metal style.
Demonic voices can also be heard briefly while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style. Growls can also be heard at times along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as some synths also being utilized briefly and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them and all of the music also sticks to a heavier direction.
Hierarchy plays a musical style that takes melodic black metal and mixes it with 90's era death metal to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferian, Left hand Path, Occultism, Blasphemy, Anti Christianity and the writings of H.P Lovecraft.
In my opinion Hierarchy are a very great sounding melodic and blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Light Ov the Morning Star" "Ave Satanas" "Suicide Ceremony" and "Through The Fires Of Moloch". 8 out of 10.
The brainchild of Vernon Boward III and Michael Goguey Jr . Hierarchy was formed in 2002 and went through numerous lineup changes before going on indefinite hiatus in 2010. But as the gods would have it, the stars and planets aligned and Hierarchy was reborn once more in 2018! This band is now poised to conquer the world!
For fans of: Amon Amarth, Behemoth, Deicide, Dark Funeral
