Demonologist are a band from Ukraine that plays a blackened form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2021 album "I Curse, I Dance" which was released by Kult und Kaos Productions.
Horror movie samples start off the album before going into a heavier and melodic musical direction while the riffs also add in a great amount of first wave and thrash metal elements. Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they also remain true to an old school style while some songs also add in a small amount of back up shouts. When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can also be heard along with the songs also adding in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as some tremolo picking also being added into some of the faster riffing and the whole album also sticks to a heavier direction.
Demonologist plays a musical style that takes black and thrash metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Horror and Violence themes.
In my opinion Demonologist are a very great sounding blackened thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genres, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Be My Quest" "High On Evil" "I Curse, I Dance" and "Ashes In Air". 8 out of 10.
