Langsuir are a band from Malaysia that plays a blackened and occult form of death metal and this is a review of their 2019 ep "Cemar" which was released by Legion Music.
Synths, baby cries and female vocals start off the ep before going into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody and the vocals are mostly blackened metal screams.
A great amount of early 90's death metal elements can be heard throughout the recording along with the faster sections of the songs also adding in a decent amount of blast beats. The songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, clean vocals can also be heard briefly and the also close the ep with a cover of Profantica's "Weeping In Heaven".
Langsuir plays a musical style that takes early 90's era black and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics a re written in Malaysian and cover occultism, eastern folklore, darkness and mythology themes.
In my opinion Langsuir are a very great sounding occult blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Gentayangan Bajingan Malam" and "Plenary Of Wickedness". 8 out of 10.
