Death Covenant

Rated 4/5 (80%) (4 Votes)

Arallu are a Death/Black Metal band with Middle Eastern mythic themes, and so it is no surprise that they sound a good bit like Melechesh and that mainstay Moti Daniel was actually in Melechesh for a brief time back in 1997. This band has been toiling in the underground for a long time, putting out 8 full-length albums in a career that stretches back 25 years. I really love this kind of ancient Mideast-flavored stuff, so along with Melechesh, Nile, and Maat I am glad to have another one. This is not as technical as those comparisons would imply, and I would like if the production were heavier and more intense, but overall the quality on this is high, and I am going to have to dig into this band's back catalog.
