Jordablod are a band from Sweden that plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of their album "The Cabinet Of The Numinous Spirit" which will be released in 2020 by Iron Bonehead Productions.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album while slide guitars can also be heard briefly before going into a heavier direction. A great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with all of the musical instruments on the recording also having a very powerful sound to them.
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 raw feeling. Vocals are mostly angry sounding black metal screams while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style and the tracks also add in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Clean playing and acoustic guitars also return on some of the later tacks as well as the riffing also showing some influences of death metal at times. Elements of post punk and folk can also be heard at times along with one track also introducing keyboards onto the recording, touches of black'nroll are also utilized on some songs as as the album progresses they also bring in a psychedelic sounding instrumental. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism themes..
In my opinion Jordablod are a very great and original sounding occult black metal band and if you are looking for something that is very different, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Two Wings Of Becoming" "Blood And Rapture" and "To Bleed Gold". 8 out of 10.
