Power From Hell are a band from Brazil that plays a mixture of modern black and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Profound Evil Presence" which will be released in June by High Roller Records.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the album along with some synths and classical guitars while demonic spoken word parts can also be heard briefly before going into a heavier musical direction. Elements of thrash can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording ans the vocals are mostly grim sounding black emtal screams.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
A decent amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing along with the solos and leads also using a decent amount of melody. The music also mixes in influences from the first, second wave and modern eras of black metal in their musical style and as the album progresses a brief use of clean playing can also be heard. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Power From Hell are a very great sounding modern mixture of black and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "When Night Falls" "Unholy Dimension" "Diabolical Witchcraft" and "Demons of the Night". 8/5 out of 10.
