Voreus are a band from Germany that plays a bestial mixture of war, black and death metal and this is a review of their 2018 ep "The Proclamation" which will be re-issued in December, 2020 by Sentient Ruin Laboratories.
Dark yet ritualistic soundscapes and chants start off the ep before going into a very fast, raw and brutal war metal direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking. Vocals also being in a mixture of bestial growls and blackened metal screams along with a small amount of dark sounding melodies being added into the guitar riffing.
All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very chaotic style along with the music also capturing a very cavernous atmosphere at times as well as the closing track also being very long and epic in length.
Voreus plays a musical style that takes bestial black/death and war metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness and death themes.
In my opinion Voreus are a very great sounding bestial mixture of war, black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Progeny Of Fire" and "Descending Into The Infernal Abyss". 8 out of 10.
