Taking what old-school horror metal did so well and contorting it to create their own brand of even more blood thirsty and malevolent sound is Vaultwraith. Death Is Proof of Satan’s Power is the newest release from these Missouri hellions, and within this record you are subject to some gruesome, horrifying and hair raising tracks to lose your head to. Death Is Proof of Satan’s Power is truly undeniable, haunting, heavy and just down right sinister. From the first note on, you realize that you are in for a frightening and blood curdling listen.
Vaultwraith does a great job of capturing a truly horrifying atmosphere as you become acquainted with a massively devilish sound track after track. The atmosphere that you become shrouded in while listening is in a large part brought to you by the haunting keyboards that can be heard through each and every track. The keyboards work in harmony with the malicious metal to create an overall haunting, grim and overall chilling sound and atmosphere. The keyboard elements that are sewn in to this release are done so so seamlessly and so well. The ever present keyboard effects push each track further in to the netherworld and really bring not only each track, but the entire record together forming a cohesive damning listen.
Other than the swirling hair raising atmospheric elements that the keyboards provide, you are gifted with some neck twisting and brain bruising metal to go along with them of course. Each of the eleven tracks that are present on Death Is Proof of Satan’s Power is ripping and entirely memorable. There isn’t a track on this record that isn’t a fiery hell storm of black magic metallic goodness. Each track is just as good as the ones that came before it providing you with an overall entertaining and solid listen. Through and through Death Is Proof of Satan’s Power is a solid record with nothing but devilishly good songs to head bang to.
Death Is Proof of Satan’s Power is a haunting, grim, atmospheric, heavy and well rounded release that will have you head banging and air guitaring along. These are the type of tracks that get stuck in your head for days and this is the type of record that you put on repeat for quite some time.
