Filii Nigrantium Infernalium are a band from Portugal that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording plays a mixture of black, thrash and heavy metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Hostia" which will be released by Osmose Productions.
Ritualistic spoken word parts start off the album before going into a very fast and heavy direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats along with some elements of thrash and first wave black metal as well as some traditional metal influences and the riffs also use a great amount of melody.
Vocals bring in a mixture of power metal singing and black metal screams while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and while the music is heavily rooted in the 80's it still sounds modern at the same time along with the solos and leads also bringing in an old school extreme metal style.
When tremolo picking is utilized it gives the songs a more raw feeling while the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses a brief acoustic instrumental can also be heard before returning back to a heavier direction and some of the riffs also bring in influences of NWOBHM.
On this recording Filii Nigrantium Infernalium remain true to their mixture of black and thrash metal while also expanding on the traditional metal elements, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics are written in Portuguese and cover Occultism, Satanism and Anti Christianity themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Fulii Nigrantium Infernalium and if you are a fan of black, thrash and heavy metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Po" "Santa Misericorid" "Hostia" and "Raze The Dead (Of Death)". 8 out of 10.
