Nox Vorago are a band from Sweden that plays a symphonic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Al Chem".
A very symphonic sound starts off the album along with some heavy riffs being mixed in and after awhile death metal growls are added on the recording and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard and a decent amount of melody can be heard in the guitar riffing and black metal screams are added into some parts of the songs.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced, and fast parts and some of the faster riffing also brings in a decent amount of tremolo picking and when guitar leads are finally utilized they are done in a very distorted yet melodic fashion and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and one track also brings in a brief use of acoustic guitars and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Nox Vorago plays a musical style that takes symphonic black metal and mixes it with death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover occultism, mysticism, rites, history and legends themes.
In my opinion Nox Vorago are a very great sounding mixture of symphonic black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Elenu Tiamtatu" "The Hissing Sound Of Ouroboros" and "At The Feet Of Ereshkigal". 8 out of 10.
