Title: Llamas de gloria primera
Label: Satanath / Morbid Skull
Style: Black Metal
I have no info on this band's line-up, so actually I have no idea if this is a one-man-band or a full line-up act, but certain is the band was started in 2015 and this is its debut studio album, an 8 tracks effort clocking 40 minutes of old-school Black Metal. To me their music reminds of Peruvian Goat Semen's initial works, maybe less bestial and with a heavier influence from Death and Thrash Metal. There's a lot of raw energy emanated from and on these 8 tracks, but after a couple of spins I can say I miss the surprising element from their music, there's not much to capture your interest in terms of originality, yet the band points on delivering brute power with an evil, dark atmosphere surrounding it all. The production is far from being polished, but fits this music just perfectly, the mix is spot on, and the overall result is more than acceptable. The vocals, brutal and abrasive, are maybe pushed too in front in the mix and after a while they tend to capture the complete attention, not sure how good is that for Enoquian as a bit more variation in vocals would have been a good addition, too. All in all a debut that presents this young band to the fanatics of brutal and traditional Black Metal, a capable band with definite potential.
