Athiel are a band from Italy that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recoding plays a very satanic and occult mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2023 album "Destroy The Laws Of Good".
A synth orientated intro starts off the album before going into a very fast, raw and brutal direction which also utilizes a great amount of tremolo picking and blast b eats. Melodies' are also added into some of the guitar riffing and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Vocals a re mostly high pitched black emtal screams while the songs also add in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Acoustic guitars can also be heard on a couple of songs along with the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style as well as some death metal growls also being utilized at times, one of the tracks is also an instrumental and synths also make a brief return.
On this recording Athiel plays a musical style that takes a satanic and occult form of black metal and mixes it with death metal to create a sound of their own The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Anti Cosmic Satanism, Necromancy, Chaos and Death themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Athiel and if you are a fan of satanic and occult black and death metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sitra Achra" and "Chant For Azagoth". 8 out of 10. occultblackmetalzine
