Arseis are a band from France that plays a mixture of black, death and folk metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Melz Venist Li Brullin" which was released by Black Death Productions.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style along with the vocals being mostly death metal growls as well as some black metal screams also being utilized at times.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard while folk instruments are also mixed in with the heavier sections of the music at times. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffs also adding in a good amount of melody.
A great portion of the tracks are also very long and epic in length along with some songs also adding in a small amount of clean playing and acoustic guitars as well as some tremolo picking also being added into some of the faster riffing and leads. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in French and cover medieval themes.
In my opinion Arseis are a very great sounding mixture of black, death and folk metal and if you are a fan of those musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Au Gibet De Montfaucon" "Sorceresce Haguenau" and "La Recluse". 8 out of 10.
