Iblis/Menthell/DTM Productions/2012 CD Review


  Iblis  are  a  band  from  Poland  that  blacks  a  mixture  of  avant  garde  metal  and  black'n'roll  and  this  is a  review  of  their  2012  album  "Menthell"  which  was  released  by  DTM  PRoductions.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being t hrown  into t he  music  at  times,  while t he  sound  effects  bring  a  very  dark  avant  garde  experimental/noise  sound  to  the  music,  as  for  the  bass  playing  it  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  tone  with  progressive  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  avant  garde  metal  with  black  metal  and  black'n'  roll  along  with  a  great  amount  of  influences  from  experimental  music  and  there  are  little  to  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording.

  Vocals  range  from  black metal  screams,  hateful  growls,  clean  singing  and  spoken  word  parts,  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  and  weird  themes,  as  for t he  production  it h as  a very  strong,  powerful  and  professional  sound  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

    In  my  opinion  Iblis  are  a  very  great  sounding  avant  garde/black  metal/black  'n'  roll  hybrid  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  style,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "12  Syncamores"  "Poison  In  Your  Food"  and  "Buck Skins  Fifth".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
