Sekoria are a band from Germany that plays a very symphonic and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2012 album "Iter Stellarum".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the orchestra's bring a very dark, atmospheric and symphonic sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast atmospheric and melodic death metal riffs that utilize a good amount of death metal influences in the riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic black metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when t hey are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to enhance the epic elements of the recording.
Vocals range from grim sounding and high pitched black metal s creams to deep death metal growls, while the lyrics are written in a mixture of German and English and cover dark and depressing themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Sekoria are a very great sounding epic, symphonic, and melodic black metal b and and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ursprung Der Zeit" "Sonium" "Summon The Demon" and "Do You Repent!". RECOMMENDED BUY.
