Kavrilla are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of sludge and death metal with a touch of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Blight" which will be released in August as a joint effort between Medusa Crush Recordings, Breathe plastic and Backbite Records.
Distorted amp noises start off the album before going into a heavier direction t hat is also very heavily influenced by hardcore punk while the slow riffs are more rooted in sludge and doom metal and death metal growls are also utilized at times and elements of d beat are in the faster sections of the songs.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic fashion while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody and as the album progresses elements of black metal are added onto the recording and some songs also add in a small amount of drones and tortured voices and clean guitars are added onto the closing track.
Kavrilla plays a musical style that takes hardcore punk, sludge and death metal and mixes them together with a touch of black metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Kavrilla are a very great sounding mixture of hardcore punk, sludge and death metal with a blackened touch and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Each" "Gold" and "Apocalypse". 8 out of 10.
