Los Males del Mundo are a duo from Argentina that takes the modern style of black metal and mixes it with the old school 90's melodic sound and this is a review of their album "Descent Towards Death" which will be released in 2021 by Northern Silence Productions.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the album while the music also has its atmospheric moments which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the songs. Spoken word parts can also be heard briefly along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic post metal style and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
When tremolo picking is utilize d it also gives the songs more of a raw feeling while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams. At times the vocals also get deep sounding along with the music also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and a great portion of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. at times the music also captures the aggression of the mid 90's era and spoken word parts also return in certain sections of the recording.
Los Mal3es del Mundo plays a musical style that takes the modern atmospheric era of the black metal genre and mixes it with the aggression of the mid 90's melodic era to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the philosophical writings of Fredrich Nietzsche, Emil Cioran and Arthur Schopenhauer.
In my opinion Los Males del Mundo are a very great sounding aggressive and melodic black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Falling Into Nothing" and "The Heavy Burden". 8 out of 10.
