Livarkahil are a band from France that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that I would describe as being blackened death metal and this is a review of their self released 2012 ep "Wrath Of God".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them, as for the synths they are only utilized briefly on the last song and bring a symphonic black metal sound to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast blackened death metal riffs that utilize a great amount of dark sounding melodies and some metalcore style breakdowns with the riffing having more black metal influences than the previous recordings in addition there is a brief use of clean playing being utilized on the last song, while the lead guitars are very melodic and technical sounding blackened death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from blackened death metal screams and growls along with some deep death metal growls and clean singing, while the lyrics cover hateful and anti christian themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is another great recording from Livarkahil and if you are a fan of their previous effoets, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Eternal Sun" and "Wrath Of God". RECOMMENDED BUY.
