Guerra Total are a band from Columbia that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of black and speed metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Nihilistic Malthusian (The Ouroboros Cosmic Indifferentism)" which was released by Iron, blood And Death Corporation.
Horror movie styles synths start off the album along with some acoustic guitars a few seconds later as well as introducing melodic guitar leads onto the recording and after the intro the music goes into a heavier speed and thrash metal influenced direction along with a great amount of blast beats and grim black metal screams.
Elements of both first and second wave black metal can be heard in the bands musical style and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the fast riffs also use a great amount of tremolo picking and there is also a brief use of deep death metal growls and melodic singing and synths also make a return in certain sections of the recording and one track also adds in a touch of jazz music before returning back to a heavier direction and influences of punk can also be heard at times.
Guerra Total creates another recording that remains true to the black, speed and thrash metal mixture of previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover H.P Lovecraft, Nihilism, and Philosophical themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Guerra Total and if you are a fan of black, speed, and thrash metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Universal Misanthropolis" "Metaphysical Solipsism" "Bethlehem Zombie God" and "Nyarlathotep (The Black Pharoah)". 8 out of 10.
