Poland's Hate Them All have returned with a new recording which continues the raw, old school and satanic style of black metal from previous releases and this is a review of their 2019 ep "Goat Tormentoe" which was released by Old Temple.
A very heavy and old school sound starts off the ep while also being very heavily rooted in the 80's and 90's era. Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams along with the music also mixing both the first and second wave era's of the genre together and the riffs also bring in a small amount of dark sounding melodies.
When the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can also be heard while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them. Elements of punk and thrash can also be heard in some parts of the music along with the songs expanding more on the retro elements of their previous releases, when tremolo picking is finally utilized it also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
On this recording Hate Them All mixes more 80's influences into their old school style of satanic black metal. The production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics are written in a mixture of English and Polish cover Satanism, Occultism, Darkness, Anti Christianity and Alcohol themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Hate Them All and if you are a fan of satanic and old school black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unholy War - Without God" and "Destroyer Of Bones". 8 out of 10.
