This is a review of some rough tracks from Brazil's LeMarchand that where recorded between 2017 and 2018 and while these tracks where not released to the public they show where there music has been heading sent the last official release in 2015 and on these songs they go fro more of a raw and nationalist style of black metal.
Nature sounds, field recordings and spoken word parts start off the first track before introducing some synths into the music. Clean vocals can also be heard briefly while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them once the music gets very heavy a brief use of growling vocals can also be heard.
After awhile the vocals start adding in some grim black metal screams while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of blast beats. Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with the music also wetting very epic and militant sounding at times.
Elements of classical music can also be heard briefly while some of the mid tempo riffing shows some influences of punk and oi along with some tremolo picking and blast beats being utilized when the music speeds up and they give the songs more of a raw feeling, melodic guitar leads can also be heard briefly.
A couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length while you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts throughout the recording while the last track shows the music going into more of a ritualistic direction. The production sounds very dark and while the lyrics are written in a mixture of Portuguese and English and cover Paganism, Satanism and Nationalism themes.
In my opinion these are some very great sounding tracks from LeMarchand which shows a great amount of progress from the previous material that was reviewed and if you are a fan of raw, satanic, pagan or nationalist black metal, you should enjoy their newer material once it is released to the public. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "We Are Pagans" and " Oi Iberia". 8 out of 10.
