PYROMANCER - Demo MMXV MCD
Pyromancer are a two-man black/death metal band from Lexington, Kentucky. The demo takes the grim, lo-fi atmosphere of second-wave Norwegian black metal bands and combines it with the aggressive bestiality of bands like Archgoat. The guitars are dark and menacing, and Horus’ low vocals tend to be employed when the music is at its most sinister, evoking a demonic, “welcome to Hell, mortal” feel. Although it is definitely a cohesive whole, no song sounds very much like another. Given that a lot of black metal tends to get very repetitive over the course of a whole album, it’s refreshing when each song brings its own distinct flavor of darkness to the table.
