Still rules after so many years


4.5 superbTheSpirit CONTRIBUTOR | April 30th 11

Horribly underrated early black/death album that like most extreme metal from South America has very noticeable thrash influences as well. With a sense of minimalism that carries on from the riffs to the suitably dry production, Aquelarre's bare-bones approach is always effective, whether the band be performing their high-speed tremolo picked riffs or delving into the depths of doom with simple yet crushing chords and a funeral crawl pace. Also packed full of leads that range from absolute whammy-bar shred to creepier, more atmospheric lines, the lack of atmosphere from the production is more than made up for with a myriad of different yet equally terrifying guitar textures. To complete this near perfect package are the vocals, a great mash-up of hoarse gutturals and raspy high pitched screeches. Overall an album that is highly developed despite its simplistic presentation, Aquelarre to this day, still deserves to be a more recognized album within death and black metal's formative years.
