This is a review of a split album between Romania's Akral Necrosis and Marchosias called (Inter)Section" which was released by Loud Rage Music and we will start off the review with Akral Necrosis a band that plays a very heavy and modern style of black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very fast and raw black metal sound that is in the more modern style of the genre along with some distorted melodies and the vocals are high pitched screams that also use a touch of death metal growls and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
When solos and leads are utilized they are very dark and melodic sounding and they also bring in a live track that also uses a brief use of clean playing and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on their side of the recording along with one of the tracks being very long and epic in length and they close their side of the split with a cover of Marchosias's "The Sacred book".
Akral Necrosis plays a style of black metal that is very genre while still being very true to the tradition of t he genre, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover darkness, Satanism and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Akral Necrosis are a very great sounding raw and heavy black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Separator".
Next up is Marchosias a band that plays an experimental form of occult black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very heavy death metal influenced guitar riff along with a blast beats being utilized during the faster sections of t he music and after awhile high pitched black metal. screams and melodies are added into the songs along with some growls being utilized at times and the songs bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
All of the musical instruments present on their side of the recording have a very powerful sound to them and when guitar leads are utilized they bring in more of a melodic style of black metal and the music also gets very experimental at times while also always keeping everything in a heavy direction and they close their side of the split with a cover of Akral Necrosis's "Slay the Whore".
Marchosias plays a style of black metal t hat is very heavy and melodic and they mix it in with elements of experimental and death metal to create a style of t heir own, t he production on their side of the split sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover Luciferianism, Dark Spirituality, and Self Awareness through Religious Concepts.
In my opinion Marchosias are a very great sounding experimental mixture of occult black and death metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "False Prophet".
In my opinion this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of modern black metal. 8 out of 10.
