Demon Haunt are a solo project from Brazil that plays a mixture of black, thrash, speed metal and punk and this is a review of his self released and self titled 2020 ep.
A very heavy punk influenced d beat sound starts off the ep while the vocals are done in mostly a first wave black metal style. Most of the music is also very heavily rooted in the 80's era along with one track also introduces spoken word samples onto the recording and the music also mixes in a great amount of thrash and speed metal elements.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the music also adds in a touch of early death metal at times. All of the riffing is done on power chords along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them, one of the tracks is an Inepsy and one song also adds in a brief use of synths and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they also remain very true to a retro style..
Demon Haunt plays a musical style that takes first wave black, thrash, speed metal and punk and mixes them together to create a sound of his own. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover Science, Carl Sagan, Existentialism and Anti Fascism themes.
In my opinion Demon Haunt are a very great sounding mixture of first wave black, thrash, speed metal and punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Demon Haunt" and "In League With Sagan". 8 out of 10.
