Akephalos are a band from Kentucky that plays a very brutal form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album ""Headless Demon Angel" which was released by Immortal Souls Productions.
Evil sounding synths start off the album along with some operatic female vocals before going into more of a heavy and brutal musical direction while the solos and leads are done in a very dark and melodic musical direction and when t he music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
A great amount of dark sounding melodies can also be heard in the guitar riffing while the vocals are mostly deep death metal growls along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and synths also make a return on some of the later tracks and acoustic guitars can also be heard briefly.
Akephelos plays a style of death metal that is very brutal while also capturing a ritualistic atmosphere, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, blasphemous and occult themes.
In my opinion Akephelos are a very great sounding brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Spewed Forth From The Womb Of Hell" "Sermon Of Evil" "Corpse Made Halo" and "Ophidian Desecration". 8 out of 10.
