Necrofaith are a solo project from Italy that plays a satanic form of black metal and this is a review of her self released 2020 album "Sermon I: True Satanic Black Art".
A very dark and ritualistic sounding intro starts off the album before going into a heavier musical direction which also introduces high pitched black metal screams onto the recording. When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the songs more of a raw feeling and the music also shows influences of both the first and second wave eras.
Noise orientated soundscapes can also be heard in certain sections pf the recording while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of blast beats. Throughout the album you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the guitar solos and leads being done in a very dark yet melodic style when they are utilized.
One of the interludes also captures the atmosphere of a classic horror movie soundtrack as well as adding in a brief use of demonic sounding spoken words parts before returning back to a heavier direction and as the album progresses synths are added onto the album and the three closing tracks are instrumentals. The production sounds very dark, raw and lo-fi while the lyrics cover Satanism, Darkness and Black Metal themes.
In my opinion Necrofaith are a very great sounding satanic black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bitch Of Satan" "Blood's Chalice" and "Black Metal Is Chaos". 8/5 out of 10.
