Xaemora are a band from St. Louis, Missouri that has been featured before in this zine and plays a symphonic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Pandemonium's Ocean" which will be released on October 27th by Black Market Metal Label.
A very fast sound along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the keyboards gives the songs more of a symphonic feeling as well as the vocals being mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's tradition of the genre.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion along with some songs also bringing in a small amount of clean guitars and the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody and some of the tracks are long and epic in length and acoustic guitars are added onto the closing song.
Xaemora creates another recording that remains true to the symphonic style of black metal from previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover misanthropy, chaos and death themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Xaemora and if you are a fan of symphonic black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Beneath Frozen Tombs" "Pandemonium's Ocean" and "Altars". 8 out of 10.
