Renunciation - Deliverance from God - Song Review - Technical Death Metal from Moscow, Russia

In this article, we delve into the realm of Renunciation, a promising black/death metal band hailing from Moscow, Russia. Our focus is on their monstrous song, "Deliverance from God," as we explore its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Renunciation came to my attention through Metalhead Community Submissions about three months ago with their monstrous song, "Deliverance from God." Released as a single in 2020, the band has been actively releasing music since 2019, starting with their debut single, "Arrogance of Worms," and followed by "Deliverance from God" after a year. As a music enthusiast, I am always fascinated by bands from non-Western influenced regions, and Renunciation delivers a thrilling blend of various metal subgenres. With their second song release, the band showcases their potential and character, intertwining different metal elements into a captivating piece. While I initially anticipated Russian/Soviet influences, their ideas predominantly lean towards the Western metal scene. The structure of "Deliverance from God" deviates from the standard, expertly connecting diverse metal elements to create an intense and aggressive composition. Renunciation's attitude exudes a relentless energy that captivates from start to finish, showcasing their prowess as advanced musicians. The intricate guitar riffage throughout the song, coupled with the powerful black/death metal vocals, leaves an indelible impact. Occasional symphonic black metal vibes, particularly when the keyboards come into play, add another layer of grandeur. While reminiscent of Cradle of Filth and Dimmu Borgir at times, Renunciation successfully channels these influences to create their unique identity.

From a technical perspective, "Deliverance from God" boasts impressive standards in every aspect. Black metal artists often prioritize the rawness of the sound over quality, but Renunciation demonstrates a commitment to excellence. The band effectively incorporates basic black metal and death metal elements while maintaining simplicity and eschewing excessive digital manipulation. This approach enhances the greatness of the song and resonates with the essence of the genre.

In conclusion, my experience listening to Renunciation has been exceptional. I have faith in their potential, rooted in their culture and heritage. "Deliverance from God" marks only the beginning of their musical journey, and I am confident they will continue to evolve and improve with each subsequent release.
