Label: The Crawling Chaos Records Releasedate: 07-08-2020
SARGERAS was founded in 2013 by VVYTCHER & GHOUL in Bremen, Germany. After several line up changes and releasing 2 Demos, IRASYATI CARNAGE completed the line up, and the band released an EP and played several gigs. “Return of the Dancing Whores” is the debut full-length, released via The Crawling Chaos Records. The record deals with the subject of persecution of witchery and the extinction of several pagan cults by the Christian Empire, but also the desire for revenge and the love to satan.
“Return of the Dancing Whores” is 40 minutes of madness! There is no atmosphere and we get into the mood right away. Fast drums, aggressive vocals and raw riffs make the songs flow very easily. There is no stagnation but only fire! In general, there is a fast tempo and accompanied with the vocals and the riffs, this forms a great foundation for the band’s own BM sound. I also loved the fact that this tempo is changing within songs, sometimes getting slower and sometimes getting full-on fast. So the listeners can expect twists and turns!
Hatred and chaos are some of the aspects that build the essence of Sargeras and this album is the perfect representation of it. In addition, when we think about the concept of this release, these guys are serious at what they are delivering and they do it with full aggression and passion. Personally, this has been the highlight of the record for me. There are influences from the old school BM scene for sure and I personally felt some similarities between the Swedish black metal scene, in particular with some death metal vibes here and there. However, the band has their own interpretation and style. Combined with this dedication, they show us how this is done in a raw but polished sound.
What else is there to say? “Return of the Dancing Whores” is a must-have for the fans who like their BM raw, polished and without atmosphere.
