Musmahhu are a solo project from Sweden that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of his album "Reign Of The Odious" which will be released in 2019 by Iron Bonehead Productions.
Dark soundscapes start off the album before going into more of a heavier and brutal musical direction while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic yet chaotic style along with the faster sections of the songs also using a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats.
Vocals are mostly death metal growls along with a few black metal screams while the riffs also add in a great amount of dark sounding melodies along with the songs also adding in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as most of the tracks being very long and epic in length and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and at times the music also has its atmospheric moments and towards the end a brief use of clean playing can also be heard.
Musmahhu creates another recording that remains true to the blackened death metal style that was established on the previous release, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, horror, apocalyptic and blasphemy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Musmahhu and if you are a fan of blackened death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Apocalyptic Brigade Of the Forbidden" "Reign of The Odious" and "Thirsting For Life's Terminus". 8 out of 10.
