Anifernyen are a band from Portugal that plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Augur" which will be released in September by Ethereal Sound Works.
A very apocalyptic sounding intro starts off the album before going into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction while the vocals are in between death metal growls and black metal screams. When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can also be heard and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the faster riffing also brings in a decent amount of tremolo picking. one track also introduces clean playing onto the recording as well as some tracks also adding in a small amount of whispered vocals and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style.
Anifernyen plays a musical style that takes the melodic styles of black and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover apocalyptic and end times themes.
In my opinion Anifernyen are a very great sounding melodic 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 "Augur" "Emissary" "Foreshadowing" and "Deadite". 8 out of 10.
