Omenfilth are a band from the Philippines that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a very raw, melodic and old school form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Devourer Of The Seven Moons" which will be released in April by Eternal Death Records.
A tragic keyboard orientated intro starts off the album while also introducing black metal screams onto the recording which also becomes a very huge part of the music. During the faster sections of the songs you can also hear a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the tracks more of a raw feeling.
Dark sounding melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing while the music also brings in a great amount of 90's influences. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the solos and leads being done in a very chaotic and old school style.
Elements of death and thrash metal can also be heard in the music at times while of tracks are also instrumentals also introduces classical guitars onto the recording and the only closes with a Vulcano cover and 2 live tracks. The production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover Filipino Mythology, Darkness, Depression, and Evil themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Omenfilth and if you are a fan of raw, melodic and old school black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Summon The Beast Of Damnation" "Devourer Of The Seven Moons" "Negare Omnis Vitas" and "Embers Of A Dying Era". 8 out of 10.
