Denouncement Pyre: World Cremation

I don't have a lot to go by in order to describe this act, but what I have supposed that World Cremation is Denouncement Pyre's debut full length. Not much is being specified about them and this won't be a very exhaustive review either.

World Cremation is made of eight tracks for a total of 36 minutes. Their musical path is rooted in black metal. The guitar player is mostly using, and re-using, distorted power riffs to create the core of the song structure. Mind you, some good crushing riffs are popping in here and there. The pace is mainly set to fast, with moderate ones making occasional appearances. The raspy vocals are somewhat wicked and they do a decent job. A bit of keyboard here, some cheesy sounding bells and Gregorian chant are adding a touch of variation at times. The main problem with World Creation is its lack of sparks and variation. Nothing bad as such, but nothing that would leave a lasting impression either. You can categorize their take on black metal as un-original, generic, a bit catchy and melodic. A couple tracks are somewhat better than the others: "Salvation, the Fading Light" and "Invination of Poison". The first one is especially good for the crushing power riffs, while the second is an attempt to make an epic composition.

I guess this is what could be called a so so album and I would suggest investigating before buying.
