Evocacion are a band from Spain that plays a blackened form of doom/death metal and this is a review of their self titled 2016 album which was released on cassette by Caligari Records.
A very dark yet melodic doom metal sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls a few seconds later which also adds in grim black metal at times and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard and the guitar leads are also done in a very dark fashion.
A great amount of 90's influences can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and there is also a brief use of melodic yet ritualistic chanting and some of the tracks are long and epic in length and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the album also remains very heavy from beginning to ending of the recording.
Evocacion plays a musical style that takes 90's doom/death metal and mixes it with elements of black metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics are written in Italian and cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion Evocacion are a very great sounding blackened doom/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Rituales Sin Forma" and "Irreverencia". 8 out of 10.
