Litany are a band from California that plays a very instrumental brutal form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their self titled 2014 demo.
A very fast and brutal sound starts off the demo along with some blast beats and powerful bass lines as well as a mixture of mid paced and fast parts which also bring in influences from old school death metal and th e music is all instrumental with no vocals being utilized on any of the 3 tracks.
In certain sections of the recording you can hear a decent amount of thrash metal influences being added into the bands musical sound and when slower riffs are added into the music they h ave an early 90's Florida death metal feeling to them but mixed in with a more black metal influenced atmosphere and they also bring in a decent amount of melody on the last track.
Litany play an instrumental style of blackened death metal that probably would sound a lot more if there where growls or vocals being utilized but they still demonstrate a great amount of talent and skill with their music and the production has a very powerful and heavy sound to it.
In my opinion Litany are a very great sounding instrumental blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Infernal Diabolicus". 8 out of 10
