Label: Folter Records
Greece formation Burial Hordes is making Black Metal since their foundation in 2001. They have been actively releasing with a bunch of small releases as well as their albums of which number four saw light last year. It caries the name “ΘΑΝΑΤΟΣ ΑΙΩΝΙΟΣ (The Termination Thesis)” and is available now.
Soundwise the guys aim for the extremer side of their genre. Having that vehemence embracing into their sound rather than going for the cold icy atmosphere. The themes give a sinister touch nevertheless. We are given six tracks on this release which show a band that gives some thought to their compositions. They really take it from a start, progressing towards a highlight and has a defined ending. Sounds logic, but not all bands are giving so much clarity. It works for them, the outcome is a varied album which shows a wide range of their abilities and yet it never feels like you are thrown back and forth, very natural transitions regardless of what you may think at first. It takes a bit to see the sense of it, one can take this album on some extra spins to grasp the whole of it.
Sure, they could look a bit deeper in the production, but overall this album stands quite well. One that gives you a band that knows what they want to bring. Solid.
