Lucifericon are a band from the Netherlands that has been featured before in this zine and plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2022 album "The Warlock of Da'ath" which will b e released in November b y Invictus Productions.
Ritualistic soundscapes start off the album along with some melodic riffing a few seconds later which also takes the music into a heavier direction. A couple of the tracks are also very long and epic in length while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats.
Vocals are mostly black metal screams. while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Elements of death metal can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with the solos and leads being heavily rooted in the early 90's era of the previously mentioned genre as well having their melodic moments.
The slower sections of the songs also show an influence of doom metal, synths and acoustic guitars are also utilized on a couple of tracks and as the album progresses a brief use of ritualistic spoken word parts can also be heard. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism and Left hand Path themes
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Lucifericon and if you are a f an of blackened death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Qliphotic Trance" "Sigillum Azoetia" The Map Of Possibility" and "The Warlock of Da'ath". 8 out of 10.
