Highlights: Crystallized, Cosmic Grave
Many death/black metal bands around the world sound the same, that's why its hard to find a special release that has unique tracks and and memorable and original moments and technics, but the full-length album "Perihelion" for the Hungarian death/black metal band Neokhrome has destroyed all of my anticipations and replaced them with something stronger and more majestic.
I have noticed that 90 percent of the death/black metal bands around the world are trying to copy the sound that Behemoth created in the last 20 years of their career, but Neokhrome has managed to create their own extreme blackish moments inside the death metal structure of the drums. These guys have recorded a gift for all the people who adore the extreme side of metal music, and they've also tried so hard to mix all the desired sound that you would like to hear. The nine tracks of this record doesn't sound at all like anything else related to the ordinary black\death metal releases, a lot of clean vocals are layered above the harsh vocals in the middle of the hammering guitar riffs.
One of the things that I hated in this record is the sound of the drums, I've felt like its out of the overall track. The keyboards and the harsh vocals are caving the total sound that the guitars create, and this makes the whole environment majestic and unearthy. I recommend this album for all the listeners of black\death metal and for all those who adore the elements of symphonic metal inside the extreme metal sound. There are a lot of things to be discovered while listening to these tracks, so what are you waiting for?
If you're ready to discover some true and majestic melodies, then you have to get your copy of your release now and start sinking inside these professional melodies. I will be following the news of this amazing band and I will be waiting more successful releases in the future.
