Demonic Obedience - ''Nocturnal Hymns To The Fallen''

Demonic Obedience is the solo project of George Ntavelas, risen from the ashes of Deceptive Incarnation from Greece.

Sinister chord decomposition on clean guitar is emerging from the void, introducing us to an aggressive start One  can almost instantly notice a deep growl, occasionally accompanied by discreet and hushed demonic scream vocals (I am really amazed with their strength range in mixing, it has created chilling effects). The songs are like amorphous monster that constantly changes shape. The rhythms are constantly changing, not allowing the monotony. Occational schizoid solos are crawling like asps through the leaden core of songs,

'' Impermisible Irreverence Pt 1 '' stands out from the others characterized by melodic beginning, which spontaneously grows into death metal slaughter, and also I would point out the slow part before the solo on '' Nocturnal Imagery '', where in one segment of a cycle something like a flute in oriental scale is heard. However, the favorite song on the album is '' Gehenna '', especially schizoid bass lines with discordant clean decomposition, isolated and followed by aggressive drums as a contrast to dark smoothnes of background melody. However, what impressed me the most is the way that the song ends, and with it the way the whole album ends. The most beautiful and overwhelming solo melody which got stuck in my mind, burning in the background of slow doom riff and ghostly echoing to the nothingness of fade-out.

Extremely massive storm of death metal riffs, with very horrific, cold and gravely atmosphere.
