Warfather are an international band with members from the united States, Netherlands and Brazil that have been featured before in this zine and plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Grey Eminence" which will be released in September by Greyhaze Records.
A very heavy sound starts off the album along with a great amount of morbid sounding melodies and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the vocals bring in a mostly death metal growls along with a few black metal screams and you can hear some riffs close to Morbid Angel which a couple of the band members where a part of at one time.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic style and throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some songs also bring in a brief use of clean playing and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and a couple of the tracks are long and epic in length.
Warfather remains true to the traditional style of death metal from the last album while still bringing in a touch of black metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism and Anti Religion themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Warfather and if you are a fan of blackened death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Orders Of The Horde" "For Glory Or Infamy" "Carnage Of The Pious" and "Fair And Final Warning". 8 out of 10.
