Kentucky's Brood In Black have returned with a new recording which continues the raw and old school style of black metal from previous releases and this is a review of their self released 2019 ep "Unholy Infernal Rites".
A very dark and ritualistic synth intro starts off the ep along with some demonic vocals being utilized in the background briefly before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. The riffs also add in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams while the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's style. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the music also mixing in first wave and thrash metal elements at times and they also bring in covers of Beherit's "The Gate Of Nanna" and "Hellhammer's "Messiah".
On this recording Brood In Black remains true to the raw and old school style of black metal that was established on previous releases. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferian and Blasphemy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Brood In Black and if you are a fan of raw satanic black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Rise, Father Satan" and "Curse Of Torment". 8 out of 10.
