Sarpentra are a band from Russia that plays a blackened form of death metal along with some orchestra elements and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Supernova".
A very dark and atmospheric sound starts off the album and after the intro the music starts to get a lot more heavier and goes for a blackened death metal style along with a great amount of blast beats, melodies and classical elements and when vocals are added into the music they are done in more of a growling style.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads the band uses utilize a great amount of talent and skill and they also mix in the classical parts into the more heavier sections of the songs and there are also some tracks that bring in middle eastern style scales and they also bring in a brief use of spoken word parts and operatic female vocals.
Sarpentra plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in death metal but also mixes in black metal and elements of classical and middle eastern music to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover occult themes.
In my opinion Sarpentra are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Iron Nails Run In" "Odium (The Temple Of The Sacred False)" "I Set the World On Fire" and "Prometheus Unbound". 8 out of 10.
