Blackhammer/Daemon/2012 Demo Review

Blackhammer are a band from Italy that plays a very blackened form of doom/death metal and this is a review of their 2012 demo "Daemon".

Drum programing from slow to mid paced beats with only a brief use of fast parts and blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced blackened death metal riffs that also have a doom metal influence with the riffing being very raw and primitive sounding to them and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.

Vocals are all deep death metal growls, while the lyrics cover dark and evil themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion Blackhammer are a very good sounding blackened death/doom metal hybrid and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Daemon Noctis" and "Armagaddon". RECOMMENDED BUY>
