Voidwomb are a band from Portugal that plays a 90's influenced form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their ep "Altars Of Cosmic Devotion" which will be released in 2021 by Iron Bonehead Productions.
A very dark and ritualistic sounding intro started off the ep along with a brief use of spoken word parts before going into a heavier musical direction. Vocals are mostly death metal growls along with some black metal screams also being utilized at times and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's era.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark yet melodic style along with some evil sounding melodies also being added into some of the guitar riffing as well as some of the riffs also utilizing a decent amount of tremolo picking, at times the music also adds in a small amount of atmospheric touches.
Voidwomb plays a musical style that is very heavily rooted in the 90's era of black and death metal. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, occultism and Mesopotamian themes.
In my opinion Voidwomb are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Summon Of Utu-Shamash" and "Altars Of Cosmic Devotion". 8 out of 10.
