Amezarak – Diabolical Finale Mortum
Amezarak is a one-man, solo project specializing in chaotic and melodic black metal with hints from the Norwegian black metal scene.
“Diabolical Finale Mortum” is an okay release, as the drum machine does not add much depth to Amezarak’s unholy black metal, as it sounds so unnatural, and processed at times. This is one of the many reasons drum machines should be avoided at all costs, as it only takes away from the song’s genuine feeling and aura.
Musically and vocally, it’s your typical run of the mill black metal, with the single string melodic rhythms and raspy-sounding vocals.
Lord Dead, the man behind this sole project has some good ideas, but for them to come to life the way they need to, he’ll definitely need to put together a proper band, as this will only free up his creativity to focus more on songwriting, which will set this world ablaze.
I am not going to write this guy off just yet, despite a lot of his similarities to cult Norwegian bands like Immortal, Carpathian Forest, early Enslaved, Old Man’s Child and Gorgoroth.
The music on this album certainly creates grey atmospheres along with suspense, and melancholia under a shroud of razor sharp brutality.
The nine songs on here add up to an almost hour’s worth of evil, maniacal and deranged black metal that’s sure to wake the demons from their ancient slumber. It was not my cup of coffee, but who knows, you will probably enjoy “Diabolical Finale Mortum” more than I did. Symbol Of Domination Sarjoo Devani
