Solomonic Demons/Malevolent Destiny/Merdumgiriz/2016 Cassette Review


  Solomonic  Demons  are  a  solo  project  from  New  Jersey  that  has  been featured  before  in  this  zine  an  plays  a  melodic  mixture  of  black,  death  and  thrash  metal  and  this is  a  review  of  their  2016  album  "Malevolent  Destiny"  which  was  released  by  Merdumgiriz.

  A  very  hard,  dark  and  melodic  sound  starts  off  the  album  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the recording  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to t hem  and  after  awhile  death  metal  growls  are  added  onto  the  album  and  when  the  music  speeds  up a  decent  amount  of  blast  beats  can  be  heard  along  with  some  elements  of  thrash.

  When  solos  and  leads   are  utilized  they  bring  in  a  more  old  school  extreme  metal  style  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and fast  parts and  black  metal  screams  can  also  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  the  music  is  mostly  rooted  in  the  mid  80's  and  early  days but  with  more  up  to  date  technology and  as  the  album  progresses  a  brief  use  of  clean  playing  can  be  heard  while  the  main  focus  remains  more  on  a  heavier  style  and  classical  guitars  along  with  spoken  word  parts  are  introduced  on  the  last  track.

  Solomonic  Demons  creates  another  recording  that  takes  the  melodic  and  old  school  style  of  black, death  and  thrash  metal  and  mixes  them  together  to  create  a  very  heavy recording,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while the  lyrics cover  dark, violent, war  and  occult  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Solomonic  Demons  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  black,  death  and  thrash  metal,  you should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Dawn  Of  Souls"  "Rotten  World"  and  "War  Never  Changes". 8  out  of  10.

Solomonic Demons Interview


1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?


Solomonic Demons is not just and Ordinary Metal Band even if I'm no the best skilled Musician or Lyricist outside I try to put all My effort in the composition of the Solomonic Demons music trying to give the band an Unique sound with lyrics  of Occultism, Death and Ordinary man issues this is the result of 6 years trying to find the adequate sound because Solomonic Demons is not just music is a cult.


2.How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recordings/


I focus in Keeping the sound  Raw and Clean; this may sound a contradiction but Metal genre has so many subgeners so is Possible even if Im not an Engineer. I know how I wanna sound it has to be Heavy Thrash and Death.


3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with the music?


The Main Idea of Solomonic Demons was Demonology I was so obsessed with the grimoire of  the Lesser key of Solomon in 2009 that I decided to create a Project only to focus on the Invocation and description of the Demons founded on the spell books. The album Firestorm is divided in 2 parts  the first part is the Invocation  that focus Lyrics on the topic mentioned already Demonology theres no Satanic themes so far on the lyrics do not get confused , The Second part is the Evil part  were Lyrical themes are more about Death, War and Real world issues also the music is more faster and

less melodic in this part of the album.


4.Your name is Beelzebul and the band name and some of the songs are based upon the Goetia, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in the occult?


Beelzebul cause destruction through tyrants,  cause demons to be worshipped among men, to excite priests to lust, to cause jealousies in cities and murders, and to bring on war when you hear Solomonic  Demons thats what you expect and only the prince of Hell can sign that thats why I call myself Beelzebul, Like I Mentioned Before I was obsessed with Demonology on some point of my life and maybe Im still

thats the Flame that Solomonic Demons always going to need.


5.From 2008 to 2013 there was no music being released can you tell us a little bit more about what was going on during that time frame?


The Project had to many Music changes over the years I never was satisfied until 2013 maybe 10 demos were recorded before I cud present a solid Idea thats why so many years.


6.With this musical project you record everything by yourself but also have a full band on the side, how would you compare the two?


Solomonic Demons and Notas Fantasmas are to different.  Notas Fantasmas is a Black Metal band and focus in Satanic themes is faster even blast

beats  is more nasty like a wild child running with no focus more than destruction.


7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of metal?


I had seen a lot of reviews and this makes me very happy by the way Im trying to make this thing even better and I can promise next music is going to be better and more technical


8.What is going on with your other band these days?


unfortunately Notas Fantasmas broke up on 2012 I couldn't Make Black Metal anymore I don't feel myself as a Satanic  person without that you cant make black metal even if you just sing just about blasphemy


9.Where do you see yourself heading into as a musician in the future?


I hope I can tour worldwide with the project I want people to see Solomonic Demons live more albums are coming like i said this is just the beginning


10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?


I love Metal and I have to many influences and I cant list them all but I can list Solomonic  Demons influences: Atomizer ( Aus ) Coven ( 60s Rock band ), Amorphis, Angel Witch, Destroyer 666, Crematory, Deathhammer, Decapitated, Megadeth, Dissection, Devil Lee Rot, Mercyful fate, Metalucifer and a few more that I don't remember right now. I collect Vinyls Records I love to buy music from New bands that I like and Oldies reiused


11.What are some of your non musical interests?


I have family wife and kids so when Im not either Working or making Music Im spending my time with them


12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?


Im really pleased that I finally was able to exposed Solomonic Demons to the World I was working for years in this project but I promise that this just the beginning of Solomonic Demons journey

Solomonic Demons/Firestorm/Merdumgiriz/2015 CD Review


  Solomonic  Demons  are  a  solo  project  from  New  Jersey  that  plays  a  melodic  mixture  of  black  and  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2015  album  "Firestorm"  which  was  released  by  Merdumgiriz.

  A  very  heavy  thrash  influenced  sound  starts  off  the  album  along   with  some  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  and  after awhile  melodies  are  added  onto  the  recording  and  the  solos  and  leads  use  a  great amount of  melody  while  also   adding  in  a  touch  of  traditional  metal  and  as  the  album  progresses  growls  make  their  presence  known.

  Most  of  the  riffs  are  mid  paced  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  small   amount  of  blast  beats  can  be  heard  and  the  music  mixes  in  a  great  mixture  of  80's  and  90's  extreme  metal  influences  from  a  variety  of  many  genres  and  the  whole  album  remains  true  to  a  very  heavy  and  retro  musical  direction  while  the  production  updates  the  music  for modern  times  and  melodic  vocals  are  added  onto  the  last  track.

  Solomonic  Demons  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  heavy,  thrash,  death  and  melodic  black  metal  and  mixes  them  together  to  create  a  musical  style  of  his  own,  the  production  sounds  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  Goetia,  Evil,  Witchery,  Magick  and  Demons  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Solomonic  Demons  are  a  very  great  mixture  of  heavy,  thrash,  death  and  melodic  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this solo  project.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Firestorm"  "72  Spirits"  and  "Brotherhood  Warfare".  8  out  of  10.
