Hellspawn where a band from Australia that played a very atmospheric form of satanic black metal and this is a review of their 2001 album "Lords Of Eternity" which was released by Rotten Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the keyboards bring a very dark, epic and atmospheric sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that utilize some dark sounding melodies and death metal influences in the riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the classical guitars when utilized they use finger picking to enhance the dark atmosphere that is coming out of the music.
Vocals a re mostly grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams with some deep death metal growls and spoken word ritualistic parts, while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism, Darkness and Anti Christian themes, as for the production it h as a very strong, powerful, and heavy sound to it.
In my opinion Hellspawn where a very great sounding atmospheric satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Whores Of Adramalech" "Baphomet's Disciples" and "Realm Of The Black Angels". RECOMMENDED BUY.
