Sirrush are a band from Italy that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2022 album "Molon Labe" which will be released in November by Non Serviam Records.
A very epic war orientated intro starts off the album while also adding in a brief use of synths before going into a heavier direction. Melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing while some of the tracks are also very long and epic in length and the faster sections of the songs also add in a lot of brutal sounding blast beats.
Tremolo picking can be heard in some of the faster riffing while the vocals are mostly death metal growls along with some black metal screams being utilized at times. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads also being in a more old school orientated style.
Synths also make a return in certain sections of the album as well as a couple of songs also introducing clean playing into the music, female vocals can also be heard briefly and the closing song is a Mediterranean style acoustic guitar instrumental. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover The Ancient Battles Of Greece and Greek Mythology.
In my opinion Sirrush are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Deimos" "Molon Labe" and "The Last Glorious Echo". 8/5 out of 10.
