Culto Negro are a band from Costa Rica that plays a mixture of black, thrash, and speed metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Abismal Speed Metal" which was released as a joint effort between Symbol Of Domination Productions and Spiritismo Rekords.
A very heavy thrash influenced style starts off th ep along with soem high pitched screams a few seconds later and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and speed metal elments and while the music is very heavily rooted in the 80's it still sounds modern a nd the faster sections also bring in blast beats.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads also add in more of an old school style and some of the vocals also add in a touch of first wave black metal along with a few death metal growls and all of the songs stick to a very heavy musical direction.
Culto Negro plays a musical style that takes black, speed, and thrash metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover Spiritualism, Occultism, Witchery and Drugs themes.
In my opinion Culto Negro are a very great sounding mixture of black, thrash, and speed metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sobre Los Mares Subconscientes" "Ulcera Estigma" and "Saturno Devorador". 8 out of 10.
