Kyy are a band from Finland that h as been featured before in this zine and plays a very satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Beyond Flesh-Beyond Matter" which was re-issued on cassette in 2020 by Morbid Chapel Records.
A very dark and ritualistic sounding intro starts off the album before going into a heavier musical direction. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while deeper and angrier vocals can also be heard at times along with the guitar solos and leads being done in a very dark yet melodic style.
Melodies are also added in some of the guitar riffing while clean vocals can also be heard briefly while most of the music also add in more of a modern style which also remains true to the old school tradition. During the faster sections of the songs a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the music more of a raw feeling along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as one track also bringing in a brief use of ritualistic throat singing. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferian, Left Hand Path and Anti Caballa themes.
In my opinion this was another great sounding recording from Kyy and if you are a fan of satanic black metal, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Legio Serpenti" "Bloodline Of Edom" "Destroying Tiphareth" and "The Narrow Gates Of Apoleia". 8 out of 10.
