Apokalyptic Raids are a band from Brazil that plays a mixture of black, death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "The Pentagram" which will be released in October by Hells Headbangers.
A very heavy and old school Hellhammer/Celtic Frost sound starts off the album while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of blast beats. Vocals are done mostly in a first wave black metal style along with the music also being very heavily rooted in the 80's era.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they also remain very true to an old school extreme metal style. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some elements of death and thrash metal, some of the riffs also add in a small amount of melody as well as the closing track being very long and epic in length which also adds in a small amount of clean playing.
Apokalyptic Raids plays a musical style that goes back to the 80's era of black, death and thrash metal. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferian, Occultism and Death themes.
In my opinion Apokalyptic Raids are a very great sounding mixture of black, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Necromaniac (Is Back)" "The Ghost Of The Hammer" "Letter From Lucifer" and "The Story Of Pope Jaon". 8 out of 10.
