Akerbeltz - Satanic

Spanish black metaller Akerbeltz have been ploughing an evil furrow since 1996, and you would struggle to find a poor effort in amongst the six full lengths and numerous splits they have put out. The newest record, ‘Satanic’ is coming out in June on BlackSeed Productions and is another fury laden romp through dark and bleak places.

Opener ‘The Red Dragon’ draws much inspiration from the endless blasting of Marduk, and the croaking Abbath. Crafted from the most traditional of black metal riffs, songs like ‘A Deed Without a Name’ or the harsh ‘The Crypt’ are glorious to the ears of cold hearted traditionalists. Blasting drums help to enforce that blizzard like assault, while the raspy vocals invike the demons of the north.It seems cliche to claim surprise at the fact that Akerbeltz come from warmer climes, yet are capable of invoking such bleak frozen music but that doesn’t make it any less accurate. Feel the flames of ‘Opus Satanic’ wash over you and cleanse this place of non believers, and you will have faith.

Foreboding atmospheres complete a record that shies away from experimenting and rest comfortably within its traditional cocoon. Akerbeltz are great at what they do, and ‘Satanic’ sits proudly amongst some of the best and most fire breathing black metal in my collection. For that, tradition must be respected.
