Vorago - _Lobos de Guerra_
by: Pedro Azevedo (3.5 out of 5)
Raw Lusitanian black metal may not mean much to the metal world, but Vorago show a firm belief: they actually go so far as to write all their involved lyrics in Portuguese, and the theme running throughout them is unmistakable. The music has a loose, chaotic feel to the guitar work that is not uncommon in this type of black metal, as the simple guitar lines are repeated and interwoven in each song, and at times there is a little bit of Blut Aus Nord in Vorago's guitar playing and vocals. Possibly the best characteristic this demo possesses stems from the considerable atmosphere around the music, reflecting the work that has been put into the lyrics, which is done quite well considering this is only a demo ("Negro Amanhecer", for instance). The main subject here is raw black metal with an epic edge to it, however, and in that area _Lobos de Guerra_ ("Wolves of War") suffers from a largely inadequate artificial rhythm section; it's not terrible by demo standards, but a good human drummer would have made a great difference. Overall this is an interesting demo in spite of some shortcomings, and it seems likely that given the means to progress Vorago may forge an interesting path for their future.
