Hedonihil are a band from Finland that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2021 ep "II-Symptomatic" which was released by Inverse Records.
Acoustic guitars and distorted riffing starts off the ep before going into a heavier direction while the solos and leads are also done in a very dark yet melodic style. Tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the riffing while the vocals also add in a decent amount of high pitched black metal screams.
Angry growls are also a very huge part of the recording while keyboards can also be heard briefly. All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them along with a small amount of blast beats also being utilized when the music finally speeds up and most of the music also focuses more on a mid tempo direction as well as the closing song also adding in a small amount of folk instruments.
Hedeonihil plays a style of blackened death metal that is very heavy and mostly mid tempo sounding. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover negativity themes.
In my opinion Hedonihil 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 "Shattered Mindscapes" and "Sleeping Closer To Death". 8 out of 10.
