Germany's Arroganz has returned with a new recording which continues the brutal blackened death metal style from their previous releases and this is a review of their 2020 album "Morsus" which will be released in October by Supreme Chaos Records.
Stringed instruments and clean playing start off the album along with a brief use of spoken word parts and clean singing before going into a heavier direction. All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them and when the music speeds up a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats can be heard.
Vocals a re a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Electronic music sounds can also be heard briefly along with the riffs also adding in melodies at times as well as spoken word parts and clean singing also making a return on one of the later songs.
Pianos and synths can also be heard briefly along with some elements of doom metal also being added into the slower sections of the songs as well as the music also showing more diversity then previous releases, clean playing can also be heard on the closing track. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Death, Possession, Anti Religion, Chaos and Liberation themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Arroganz and if you are a fan of blackened death metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Morsus" "Dead Man Gallery" "Next level Stan" and "I Dealt With The Devil". 8 out of 10.
