Gor Morgul are a band from Italy that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Elohim" which was released as a joint effort between Satanath Records and Death Portal Studio.
A very fast and brutal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats along with the vocals being mostly death metal growls. At times the riffs also get very melodic sounding along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the music also adds in a decent amount of black metal elements. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very chaotic yet melodic style as well as a few tracks also introducing acoustic guitars and spoken word parts onto the recording but keeping the focus more on a heavier and brutal style.
On this recording Gor Morgul remains true to the blackened death metal style that was established on previous releases. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Gor Morgul and if you are a fan of blackened death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Elohim" "Rising the War For Ashtoreth" and "Lamastu". 8 out of 10.
