United Kingdom's Sathamel have returned with a new recording that continues the blackened death metal style of previous releases and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Live At Blackwood" which was released by Blackwood Productions.
A classical music style intro starts off the ep before going into a heavier musical direction and after awhile death metal growls are added onto the recording along with some black metal s creams also being utilized at times and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and you can also hear a decent amount of melody in the guitar riffing and the solos and leads bring in an old school death metal style and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the faster riffs also bring in a decent amount of tremolo picking and the whole ep also remains very heavy from beginning to ending of the recording.
Sathamel remains true to the blackened death metal style that was established on previous recordings, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism and Anti Religion themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sathamel and if you are a fan of blackened death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wingless" and "Eternal Hunters". 8 out of 10.
