Sargeist - Death Veneration (2019)


Sneakily released on the 24th of December, Sargeist unleashes nearly twenty minutes of their signature brand of Black Metal with “Death Veneration”. As one of the premiere bands of the genre, these Finns craft four intense anthems filled with furious riffing, devilish vocals and blistering drumming. As a great addition to any BM collection, this EP deserves to be heard and purchased.

Blasting the listener straight to hell with the pummeling “To Make Wolves of Men”, we have Profundus spewing his inhuman shrieks to the tune of Shatraug and VJS furious guitar work. With their signature rawness and intensity, the band transitions into the machiavellian “To Feast on Astral Blood”. We particularly enjoy this piece a lot thanks to its highly memorable melodic passages that are just brilliant for an intense headbanging session.

The band’s ability to blend unrivaled rawness, melody and crushing speed is clearly evident from the masterful “Lunar Curse”, our favorite track in this release. Closing with the ravaging title track, we are left quite impressed with the band’s ability to have a very brutal and punishing sound while featuring a crystal clear production. If you are a fan of the band and have been expecting new music since their 2018, this should surely keep you busy before their next full-length release.
