This is a review of another recording from Malaysia's Langsuir which continues the occult style of blackened death metal from their previous release and the album was released in 2019 and called "Dirgha Belasungkawa" which was released by Legion Music.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some melodic guitar leads and solos a few seconds later. Vocals are mostly blackened metal screams while the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Folk instruments can also be heard briefly while the riffs also utilized a decent amount of melody. Elements of death metal can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with the faster sections of the songs also adding in a lot of blast beats and the songs also add in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
A couple of the tracks are also long and epic in length as well as one track also introducing acoustic guitars and keyboards onto the recording, clean female and male vocals can also be heard briefly, thrash and traditional metal influences can also be heard in some of the leads and riffs. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in a mixture of Malaysian and English and cover occultism, mysticism, eastern folklore, mythology and darkness themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Langsuir and if you are a fan of occult and blackened death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Breezing Moonsoon Dance" "Mala Kulta" and "This Eastern Shore". 8 out of 10.
