I Am Death

I Am Death
(Pitch Black Records - 2012)

If you want to get somewhere in life you need a good start. The debut album from Litrosis has a lot of elements from both power metal and black metal, they have a cover made by Andreas Marshall, and on the song In The Grave You Go Alone the band features singer Zak Stevens from Circle II Circle. There are 9 songs on the CD, and the first is called Litrosis, a black intro to point out the direction that the Greeks are to follow with thunder and storm. Insomniac's Lullaby are the next song and brutality comes along with the fast guitars in this ultra black tale. Soulcide goes another way, soft mysterious music suddenly exploding like there was a monster waiting to escape from the body of evil. Countless Wounds is more black metal with hard and fast metal sounding as if they had more records on their backs and not only doing their debut CD. I Am Death is a melodic hard metal fantasy to get a more balanced and relaxed vision of Litrosis. In The Grave You Go Alone is the song where Zak Stevens do the singing, nice and melodic with piano and a symphonic touch in their songwriting. The last song is something you would never expect to be on a CD with a black metal band, but Bury The Dead gives the listeners a song in two parts, the first with symphonic orchestra music with violins and music with feelings. The second part focus on soft guitar play in a line similar to the orchestra music Litrosis offer in the start of the song. It is difficult to describe, so I can only recommend that you give it a try yourself.
