Bokluk are a band from Spain that plays a very old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Taphonomy" which was released by Memento Mori.
Dark horror movie sounds start off the album and after the intro the music goes into a fast, brutal and heavy old school death metal sound along with blast beats and growling vocals which also use some screams and the band also b rings in a mixture of mid paced and fast parts along with small amounts of melody.
When the album finds its sound it starts sounding like a mixture between both old school U.S and Swedish styles of death metal being mixed together along with a more dark, raw and brutal take of the genres and at time s the music will also have a very filthy sound in some of the really heavy sections and the recording is very heavily rooted in the mid 80's and early 90's and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Bokluk bring back some of their more darker, filthy and raw elements that a lot of old school revival death metal bands are missing along with the forgotten brutality of the past to create one of the most interesting sounding death metal elements in a while along with a very heavy and powerful production and lyrics that cover dark, violent, gore and horror themes.
In my opinion Bokluk are a very great sounding filthy, raw, and brutal old school death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Psyche" "Creed of Excruciation" "the Raw" and "Taphonomy". 8/5 out of 10.
