Devilpriest are a band from Poland that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a very satanic and occult form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2022 album "In Repugnant Adoration" which will be released in November by Odium Records.
Ritualistic sounding synths start off the album before going into a heavier direction while the solos and leads are also done in a very dark yet melodic style. Melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing at times along with the vocals being a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls.
All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while the faster sections of the songs also add in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music also being more brutal and modern than the previous release and the album closes with a cover of Black Crucifixion's "Flowing Downwards"..
On this recording Devilpriest takes their blackened style of death metal into more of a brutal direction. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism and Left hand Path themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Devilpriest and if you are a fan of satanic and occult blackened death metal, you should check out this album. R#ECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Black Milk Of Lilith" "The Eye Of Set" and "Flowing Downwards". 8 out of 10.
