Ljosazabojstwa are a band from Belarus that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 demo "Starazytnaje Licha" which was released by Hellthrasher Productions.
A very dark, heavy and melodic sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls a few seconds later and atmospheric sounds can be heard in the background and elements of doom metal can also be heard in the music at the same time and when guitar leads are utilized they stick to a melodic direction.
Epic sounding keyboards can be heard briefly and clean playing can also be heard at times along with most of the tracks being very long and epic in length and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats are utilized and they add in more of a black metal style to the songs and the vocals also bring in a small amount of screams and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Ljosazabojstwa plays a musical style that is more on the darker side of death metal and they also mix in black and doom metal elements to create a very heavy recording, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics are written in their native tongue and cover anti Christianity, death and cruelty themes.
In my opinion Ljosazabojstwa are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Starazytnaje Licha" and "Dzien Nawi". 8 out of 10.
