VULTURE LORD / BLACK ALTAR split - 'Deathiah Manifesto' - Reviewed by OccultBlackMetalZine ! check it out here at this link: https://occultblackmetalzine.blogspot.com/2022/01/black-altarvulture-lorddeathiah.html
This is a review of a split album between Poland's Black Altar and Norway's Vulture Lord called "Deathiah Manifesto" which will be released on January 15th by Odium Records and we will start off the review with Black Altar who returns with their satanic style of black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very apocalyptic sounding intro which also adds in a small amount of synths and spoken word parts before going into a heavier direction. When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a r aw feeling.
Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams as well as the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style. The production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover Satanism, Misanthropy, Darkness and Evil themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Black Altar and if you are a fan of satanic black metal, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Sacrilegious Congregation".
Next up is Vulture Lord who return with their old school mixture of black, death and thrash metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very fast and aggressive thrash metal sound along with a great amount of blast b eats. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while the tremolo picking and gives the songs more of a raw feeling and the music is heavily rooted in the 80's to 90's era.
Throughout their side of the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very old school style as well as some death metal growls also being added into certain sections of the songs and synth can also be heard on their closing track. The production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover Satanism, Anti Christianity, Blasphemy, Death and hatred themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Vulture Lord and if you are a fan of old school black metal with elements of death and thrash metal, you should check out their side of the split. RFECOMMENDED TRACK "Dominoes Of Death".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and i would recommend it to all fans of old school and satanic black metal. 8 oout of 10. - OccultBlackMetalZine
