The Antichrist Imperium are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a progressive and vant garde mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2022 album "Volume III: Satan In All His Original Glory" which was released by Apocalyptic Witchcraft.
Avant garde style pianos start off the album and also mixes in with the heavier sections of the music at times. When clean playing is utilized they also give the music more of a progressive feeling while clear vocals can also be heard at times and the riffs also add in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies.
Vocals are a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with some of the tracks also being very long and epic in length.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they also bring in more of an old school death metal style along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as some of the clean vocals also adding in touches of goth rock The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferianism and Occultism themes.
In my opinion The Antichrist Imperium are a very great sounding avant garde and progressive mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vilest Of beasts" "Tu Venus Mundi Lucifer" and "Misotheist". 8 out of 10.
