WARRIOR - Instruments Of Death - Reviewed By OccultBlackMetalZine ! Check it out here at this link: https://occultblackmetalzine.blogspot.com/2021/12/warriorinstruments-of-deathgrind-to.html
Warrior are a band from Sweden that plays a very raw and old school mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2021 album "Instruments Of Death" which was released by Grind To Death Records.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the album while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style. When the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling along with the vocals being done in more of a demonic death metal style.
Most of the music is also very heavily rooted in the early 90's era while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with a great portion of the tracks also being very long and epic in length as well as one track also introducing keyboards onto the recording.
Warrior plays a musical style that is very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave style and mixes it with a demonic death metal vocals style to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover vampirism, torture, Satanism, death, blasphemy, Sumerian and Egyptian Mythology themes.
In my opinion Warrior are a very great sounding raw and old school mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vampiric Bloodthirst" "Deathbringing Banners" "Satan's Knights" and "Void Chant". 8 out of 10. - OccultBlackMetalZine

WARRIOR was formed in 2019, in southern Sweden, and consists of 2 band members Krieghammer and Berzerker. Being a black metal band, we stand upon the shoulders of giants such as Bathory, Tormentor and Dissection just to name a few. Finding ourselves in a time where change, and perhaps degradation, is taking place at an ever-accelerating pace - WARRIOR seeks to capture and fortify the essence of black metal, the way we see it. Keeping alive, for yet some time, the dying flame that is today's black metal scene, we offer ourselves as fuel to this fire. We make music that on a personal level is spiritual yet deals with whatever theme that may inspire us. We create, through our music and the energy we infuse it with, something that will last in this world when we ourselves are gone. Upholding values and principles of bygone times, WARRIOR deals a crippling strike to all things weak and false. We raise our blood-filled cups to Chaos, to Death!
