Avslut are a band from Sweden that plays a very raw and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Deceptis" which will be released on February 18th by Osmose Productions.
A very fast and raw sound starts off` the a;bum along with a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking while the riffs also use a great amount of melody along with the vocals being mostly high pitched black metal screams as well as the music being very heavily rooted in the Swedish style.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the music also brings in a great amount of 90's influences along with some growls also being added into certain sections of the recording as well as the guitar leads being done in a very melodic fashion and at time s the music also has its atmospheric moments, as the album progresses a brief use of clean playing can be heard and the closing track is very long and epic in length.
Avslut plays a style of black metal that is very raw and melodic in the Swedish tradition, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in a mixture of English and Swedish cover hatred, misanthropy and misery themes.
In my opinion Avslut are a very great sounding raw and melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pestilens" "Legion" "Evigt Morker" and "Avslut". 8 out of 10.
