The album starts out with a very fast and heavy sound which uses black metal elements and blast beats before adding in blackened metal screams and growls before slowing down and adding in doom metal and sludge influences and they also bring out some crust and thrash metal sounds in the faster material and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
When the album goes into other songs the music becomes a mixture of black metal, crust, thrash, doom and sludge and at time s the music also gets more brutal in certain sections of the recording and the vocals add more crust and death metal in the growling parts and when we get more into the album traces of melody and blues rock are brought into the recording along with a small amount of guitar solos and leads being utilized on one of the tracks.
With this album Helmsplitter take the speed of black metal, death and crust punk and mix it in with the slower elements of sludge and doom metal as well as bringing in the melody of blues rock to create a sound of their own.
Song lyrics cover dark, occult and hateful themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Helmsplitter are a very great sounding mixture of black metal, death, crust punk, sludge, doom metal and blues rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tyrants For Blood" "Aura of Suicide" "Dance of the Heretics" and "Summoning The Leeches". 8 out of 10.
