Vanhelgd - Relics Of Sulphur Salvation Award winner

Relics Of Sulphur Salvation
by Lateishah Schultz at 03 May 2014, 1:47 AM

Death Metal band VANHELGD hailing from Sweden surprised me with their third full-length release, “Relics of Sulphur Salvation.”  The buzzsaw guitars and tormented vocal style are made obvious throughout the entire album. The assorted pacing of the tracks helps to differentiate them. The album kicks off with “Dodens Maskatna Anlete” which showcases a more melodic version of Death Metal. As the feel of Swedish Death Metal is still very noticeably there, the band took a different approach and put a twist on it. “Where All Flesh Is Soil” has a more doomy approach with riffs that’ll blow your speakers out.

VANHELGD does a great job of representing old school Swedish Death Metal while making a point of not sounding like everybody else in the genre. They took small steps in making their sound noticeably different from the norm. The band clearly spent a great deal of time thinking outside the box. I was completely impressed with this album, and happy to know that a band is still able to be original nowadays.
