Nosferathu Sathanis

Rated 3/5 (60%) (6 Votes)

Nosferathu Sathanis is the other promo that was included in the introductory package received from Bloodred Horizon Records. A glimpse at the artwork and title leaves no doubt as to what type of metal this German trio has recorded for our hearing pleasure.

Paragon Belial are back in force after a twelve years hiatus, only to jump back right into your face, out of total darkness, just like this vicious beast portrayed on the cover. Their approach is pretty basic, while at the same time highly efficient and damn powerful. True that the very good sound production brings right into your brain the muscular performances immortalized on this disc. I love guitars, either the more delicate and harmonious arpeggios or the crunchy riffs. In the case of this act, you have to deal with a wall to wall lethal dose of massive crushing riffs combined with very strong bass lines, which actually form a truly devastating, and catchy at the same time, melodic Satanic assault. Those powerful riffs are meatier during the moderate (pace-wise) compositions such as the mighty "Goatspawn" as well as the Doom Metal anthem called "Abomoth". Not too inclined for electronics, still adding some samplings (fire, thunder etc...), church bells, plus some additional harmonies in the form of arpeggios like the ones on track #8, "Necromancer".

Do you enjoy crushing Black Metal with beefy riffs? Then, you know you want Nosferathu Sathanis.
