Finland's Black Mass Pervertor have returned with a new recording which shows the music going for more of a punk influenced style of old school black metal and this is a review of their self released 2021 ep "Sodomitten Seura" which will be released in March.
Ritualistic sounds start off the ep before going into a heavier musical direction while the music also brings in elements of punk and thrash metal. Vocals are mostly angry sounding black metal screams which also show influences of both the first and second wave era and all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can also be heard while the tremolo picking also gives the songs more of a raw feeling. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some of the tracks also being short in length and programmed beats and electronic music sounds can also be heard on the closing song.
On this recording Black Mass Pervertor goes back to both the first and second wave era of black metal and updates the style for the modern era with elements of punk and thrash metal. The production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism and Evil themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Black Mass Pervertor and if you are a fan of punk influenced old school black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Call To Worship" "A Statement" and "Possessed By Satan And Evil". 8 out of 10.
