Sektarism are a band from France that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of drone and funeral doom metal and this is a review of their 2011 demo "Hosanna Sathana" which was re-issued on vinyl in 2018 as a joint effort by Zanjeer Zani and Necrocosm Productions.
Drum beats and a powerful sounding bass guitar start off the demo along with some death metal growls a few seconds later while the track is over 24 minutes in length as well as the slow riffs being very heavily rooted in funeral doom metal and when screams are utilized they add in a touch of black metal.
Elements of drone can also be heard at times while the music also gets ritualistic in some parts of the song along with the music also capturing an improv atmosphere and the music always sticks to a very slow direction. as well as adding in a great amount of angry shouts and towards the end guitar leads are also used briefly.
On this recording Sektarism takes drone and funeral doom metal and mixes them together to create a sound of t heir own, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism, Religion and Submission themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sektarism and if you are a fan of drone and funeral doom metal, you should check out this demo. 8 out of 10.
