Black Sun Brotherhood are a band from a band from Norway that plays an old school mixture of black, death metal and punk and this is a review of their 2020 album "God & Beast" which was released by Metal Blast Records.
Dark sounding synths and Gregorian chants start off the album before going into a heavier musical direction. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while the vocals go for more of an 80's black and death metal vocal approach and the music also mixes in elements of punk rock.
A lot of the guitar riffing also shows an influence of thrash metal while the solos and leads also remain true to an old school style of extreme metal. Melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing along with the songs and chants also returning on the later tracks which also gives the music more of a ritualistic feeling.
The songs also take an 80's style and also adds in a touch of a modern sound and production along with the faster sections of the songs also adding in a decent amount of blast beats. Clean vocals can also be heard briefly as well as some of the riffing also bringing in some grooves, one of the later tracks is also an instrumental. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Satanism, Black Magick and Left Hand Path themes.
In my opinion Black Sun Brotherhood are a very great sounding old school mixture of black, death, thrash metal and punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Witches Sabbath" "Leviathan" "Love Is A Demon" and "Litanies To Satan". 8 out of 10.
