Deathillusion are a band from Spain that has been featured before in this zine and plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 ep "Sitra Ahra".
A very hard yet melodic sound starts off the ep along with a small amount of clean yet distorted playing before going into a heavier direction which also introduces melodic guitar leads onto the recording and when t he music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the music more of a black metal style.
Vocals also bring in a great mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls while the riffs also use a great amount of melody and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and there is also a brief use of clean singing as well as a few seconds of avant garde elements and they also bring in a Dissection cover as a bonus track if you buy the download version.
Deathillusion creates another recording that remains true to the melodic black and death metal of previous material, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover Anticosmic Satanism/Luciferianism, Temple Of The Black Light, Liber Azerate, and Liber Falxifer themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Deathillusion and if you are a fan of melodic black and death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Invocation of Qalmana". 8 out of 10.
