Poland's Hegeroth has returned with a new recording which shows the music going for more of an aggressive and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2023 album "Disintegration" which will be released in October.
A very heavy and aggressive sound starts off the album while the vocals are mostly angry sounding black metal screams. When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard along with the music also bringing in a lot of death metal elements and the riffs also add in a great amount of melody.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. The music also mixes in influences from both the modern and old school era's of the genre and the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style, when tremolo picking is added into the fast riffing they also give the music more of a raw feeling and the whole album also sticks to a heavier direction.
On this album Hegeroth brings in elements of death metal to their aggressive and melodic style to create something very different from previous releases. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover anti clerical themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Hegeroth and if you are a fan of melodic and aggressive black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Snake" "The Ritual" "The Ring" and "An Accident". 8 out of 10. occultblackmetalzine

The PRE-ORDER of Disintegration album is is active on the bandcamp profile:
The Disintegration album is open and energetic black metal not devoid of non-genre influences. The dark and non-obvious melodics, diversity and multilayered nature are reinforced by the title Disintegration, which heralds the imminent collapse of the ideological machine imposing the only correct model of thinking.
The Disintegration album contains 9 tracks recorded in the band's studio (HH Soundlab Studios). The cover artwork was created by Maciej Kamuda (Blut aus Nord, Nunslaughter, Master, Kingdom, Deceased). The album's publisher will be the band itself, which once again, from the recording of the first riff to the physical medium, is overseeing the entire production and publishing process.
Disintegration will be available as a CD (jewel), digital version and on streaming services.
