Heretique are a band from Poland that plays a mixture of black, death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Ore Veritatus" which was released by Wydawnicto Muzyczne Psycho.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with death metal riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the synths when they are utilized which is very rare they bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine black, death and thrash metal together along with some dark sounding melodies as well as a brief use of soft and clean playing to create a sound of their own, while the lead guitars are very chaotic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads that utilize a great amount of melody.
Vocals a re mostly deep death metal growls with some high pitched black metal screams being thrown into the music at times as well as a brief use of clean singing, while the lyrics cover dark, violent and hateful themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, powerful and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Heretique are a very great sounding hybrid of black, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of this style, you should c heck out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Rain Of Fire" "Tribe" and "Lashing And Contempt". RECOMMENDED BUY.
