Poland's Ragehammer have returned with a new recording which continues their mixture of black and thrash metal from their previous releases and this is a review of their 2020 album "Into Certain Death" which will be released in September by Pagan Records.
March sounds start off the album before adding in some heavy yet melodic riffing while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them. When the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can also be heard and the vocals are mostly blackened screams.
Elements of thrash metal are also added into some of the guitar riffing while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic yet old school style. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the vocals also bringing in a very deep yet aggressive style at times.
The music taking an old school style and mixing it with a more modern day aggression along with one track also adding in a brief use of melodic chants as well as all the closing song being very long and epic in length and also introducing clean playing onto the recording and also shows the vocals mixing in more of a power/thrash metal style. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death, hate, anti religion and desecration themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ragehammer and if you are a fan of black and thrash metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Beneath The Red Suns" "Peace" "Fear Toxine" and "Dragon City". 8 out of 10.
