A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and after awhile black metal screams are added onto the recording and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful.
Most of the music is heavily rooted in the mid 80's and early 90's while also mixing in a more modern approach and the riffs also use a decent amount of melody and death metal elements and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they remain true to a very dark, melodic and old school style and some of the faster riffing brings in a decent amount of tremolo picking and clean playing along with keyboards can also be heard briefly in the background and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and ritualistic spoken word parts are added onto t he last track.
Vircolac plays a musical style that takes old school death metal and mixes it with black metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover horror, death, macabre tales, shamanism and occultism themes.
In my opinion Vircolac are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Charonic Journey (Stygian Revelation)" and "Betwixt the Devil And Witches". 8 out of 10.
