Lvcifyre are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2019 ep "Sacrament" which will be released on May 24th by Dark Descent Records.
Ritualistic chants and soundscapes start off the ep before going into a heavier direction which also uses a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats. Vocals bring in a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Tremolo picking can be heard during the faster sections of the songs while the first track are very long and epic in length. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very chaotic style along with the songs also adding in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, a small amount of dark sounding melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing and they close the ep with a cover of Kat's "Morderca".
On this recording Lvcifyre expands on the black metal elements that have always been presented in their dark style of death metal. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Chaos, Depths, Darkness and Death themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Lvcifyre and if you are a fan of blackened death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Greater Curse" and "Sacrament". 8 out of 10.
