Tyrmfar are a band from Switzerland that plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Renewal Through Purification" which will be released in June by MTAF Records.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the album which also introduces synths onto the recording before going into a very fast and brutal direction that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats. Vocals bring in a mixture of black metal growls and death metal growls along with the riffs also utilizing a lot of melody.
During the faster sections of the songs you can also hear a lot of tremolo picking in the guitar riffing. Throughout the recording the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while clean playing is also brought into the music on one track and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style and as the album progresses an instrumental is also added onto the recording.
Tyrmfar plays a musical style that takes melodic black and brutal death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and terror themes.
In my opinion Tyrmfar are a very great sounding melodic and brutal mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Of The Legions Of Eternity" "No Hope" "Freedoms Call" and "Humanity's End". 8 out of 10.
