Germany's Arroganz have returned with a new recording that continues the brutal blackened death metal style of previous releases and this is a review of their 2017 album "Primitiv" which will be released in September by F.D.A Records.
A very fast and brutal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats while the vocals are mostly death metal growls along with a few black metal screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and you can hear elements of doom metal in the slow riffing.
A great amount of dark sounding melodies can be heard in the riffs while some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, id paced and fast parts and spoken word parts can also be heard briefly and one track also introduces clean playing and acoustic guitars onto the recording but t he music mostly sticks to more of a heavier style.
Arroganz remains true to the blackened death metal style t hat was established and previous releases while also mixing in a decent amount of doom metal elements, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Death, Possession, Chaos, Liberation and Anti Religion themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Arroganz and if you are a fan of blackened death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Obliviate" and "Cortege", 8 out of 10.
