Thorny Woods - Lobrego Macilento Preludio

Brazil, the first thing Metal I think when this country is being named I think old Sepultura. From now on there’s another band I’ll think about when I hear Brazil. Thorny Woods that is. Thorny Woods is a band which plays fast and furious Black Metal. This demo from 2006 contains 2 songs and an intro. I have to say, I’m impressed. Blastbeats, decent Black Metal riffing, and desperate sounding screams. Melody can be found on this album to, well performed and nicely built into the songs. The vocalist sounds a bit like Dark Funeral’s vocalist on the earlier albums, desperate but powerful. The production on this album is ,how I would call it, “semi-raw”, it’s not one big mess, but it’s also no Dimmu Borgir, I like it a lot and everything is well audible (accept for the bass on most parts).

In short, if you’re into Black Metal played fast with some melodies, this is something you might be interested in. Also props to the creator of the Thorny Woods logo, that looks badass.
