Kira are a band from Poland that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Peccatum et Blasphemia" which will be released in October by Ossuary Records.
A very ritualistic sounding intro starts off the album before going into more of a heavier and brutal direction. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very chaotic style while the vocals also bring in a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls.
When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard while melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with one track also adding stringed instruments onto the recording.
All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them along with a couple of the tracks also being very long and epic in length as well as the music also adding in a good mixture of both old school and modern influences and as the album progresses clean playing can also be heard on some of the songs. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Luciferian, Thelema, Occultism, Blasphemy, Death and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Kira are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lucifer's Herald" "Temple Of Suffering" "In The Devil's Embrace" and "Silence Is Consent". 8 out of 10.
