Here is a band from Libya but they seem to have done some migrant wanderings like the way through Ukraine then to Germany/Netherlands.... either way last year they released their debut album (looks like the only release also) called Evoke the Ancient Curse, and by the sound of it Deathcrush has its aim to drag up the 90´s Scandinavian BM curse! because here you get a mouthful of music with early Darkthrone, Mayhem (and the rest) worshipping!
The Cold winter winds blows again!
Yes of course there is some major worshipping here but all is tastefully done and with good sense of compositions and atmosphere....besides this the overall pace is in murky mid-speed (with some exceptions) and its has a more somber and dusty satanic vibe rather then aggression or whiplash attacks. Personally i think one or two more up-tempo tracks could enhance the experience but not that i think its a must to make it good, the songs blend after all well together and the room fills with that old icy Fenriz fog...and that is nothing to complain about.
Besides the Nordic BM inspirations here and there some old school death metal that sneaks into the musical constructions, like what happened quite a lot back in the days when the lines was not drawn so clear.
Production is balanced and solid, nice organic tune overall. Nothing really to complain about hehe
For me i like the last three songs the best but all tracks hold similar sound and standard.
All in all a good start for these dudes, will be interesting what they come up with in the future! Also i would be extra curious to see what they would found if they crawled deeper into the Luciferian path...i mean to loose themselves more inside their own creative output.
