Anticosm are a band from New Jersey and on this recording goes for more of a mixture of melodic black, traditional metal and thrash'n'roll and this is a review of their 2019 album "The Call Of The Void" which will be released in August by Hell Kill Destroy Records.
Avant garde soundscapes start off the album before going into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction. The solos and leads also utilizing a great amount of melody while the faster sections of the music also utilizes a great amount of blast beats and the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the music also mixes in elements of thrash , traditional metal and rock music. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, one track also introduces a brief use of classical guitars onto the recording and death emtal growls are also added into some parts of the music.
On this recording Anticosm takes the black emtal side of their music into more of a melodic direction while also keeping elements of thrash, traditional metal and rock music that where present on their previous recording. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Anticosm and if you are a fan of melodic black, thrash, heavy metal and rock music, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Viral" "Call Of the Void" "Behold the Venom Crystals" and "Never Enough". 8 out of 10.
