Israel's  Die  Entweihung  has  returned  with  a  new  recording  which  shows  his  music  going  for more  of  a  blackened  heavy  metal  style  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2022  album  "Strict  Regime  Country"  which  will  be  released  on  November  18th  by  Clan Destine Records.

  A  very  hard  and  heavy  sound  starts  off  the  album  while  the  riffs  also  add  in  a  great  amount  of  melody.  Middle  Eastern  music  touches  can  also  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  along  with  the  music  also  having  its  progressive  moments  and  some  of  the  tracks  are  also  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  Vocals a re  mostly  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  while  death  metal  growls  can  also  be  heard  at  times.  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  traditional  metal  style  while  elements  of  doom  metal  can  also  be  heard  in  the  slower  sections  of  the  songs.

  Some  of  the  more  mid  tempo  riffing  also  shows  an  influence  of  thrash  metal  along  with  some  of  the  tracks  also  adding  in  a  small  amount  of  female  vocals.  All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  as  well  as  some  keyboards  also  being  added  into  certain  sections  of  the  album,  a  couple  of  the  songs  are  also  instrumentals  and  the  closing tacks  also  adds  in  a  brief  use  of  clean  playing  and  folk  instruments.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  the  corrupt  events  that  happened  in  Belarus  during  2021  and  2022.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Die  Entweihung  which  shows  him  going  into  a  new  direction  and  if   you  are  a  fan  of  blackened  heavy  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "One  Of  Us"  "White  Red  White  Genocide"  and  "Strict  Regime  Country".  8  out  of  10. - occultblackmetalzine

Short Bio: Die Entweihung (Desecration (German)) - one man band, formed in May 2007, by Denis Tereschenko (first years performed as Herr Entweiherr), in the northern part of Israel, three years after moving to Israel from Belarus (Vitebsk). Beginning as a raw Black Metal project, Die Entweihung, already on the second album embarks on all sorts of experiments relating to all aspects of creativity. Having passed for almost 10 years through the different, both stylistic and sound changes, Die Entweihung  releases "Neverending Terrorism" in 2015, an album as far removed from Black Metal; now the style of the project can be identified as Blackened Heavy Metal, with the lyrics about the surrounding sad reality. The newest conceptual “Strict Regime Country” is continuing the way of  the three previous albums, presenting to the listener eclectic mixing such styles like Heavy Metal, Thrash Metal, Doom Metal, Prog Rock with rich vocal diversity (male growling/screaming, female growling/clean vocals) and lot of Middle-Eastern melodies.

The album is dedicated to Denis' native Belarus, and all the album titles and lyrics are based mostly on the events that happened in 2020-2021 in Belarus (False elections, largest protests in the country's history, lot of people were imprisoned or forced to run from Belarus).
