The Slow Death : The Slow Death


The Slow Death : The Slow Death

Band name: The Slow Death

Overall, the work of The Slow Death is exactly what I had been hoping to hear around the time I discovered them. I was hoping to find some sort of revival of the primitive and gritty sounds of 90's doom/death metal. What's refreshing is that, while melodic elements like clean female vocals and pianos do have a big part in the music, the music is very far from the romanticism that can be associated with the likes of Anathema or My Dying Bride. If anything, this album leans more on the funereal side, with more of a terminal and desolate tone to its sorrowful compositions. Over the course of

The Slow Death : II - Genre : Metal albums reviews

The Slow Death : II


The Slow Death : II

Band name: The Slow Death

This album tells the story of the last people on Earth following a cataclysmic event, and excels at creating moods of isolation and sorrow. (Mandy's excellent artwork also provides a great visualisation of the colours and landscapes evoked in this concept.) Despite the presence of a female band member providing vocals and keyboards, this is firmly guitar-based funeral doom/death metal, with the keyboards mostly used to create unsettling background ambiences and atmospheric intros/outros. Stuart's clean leads throughout the album are beautifully mournful and "Empty Places" and "Reflections in

Majestic Downfall / The Slow Death : split


Majestic Downfall / The Slow Death :  split

Band name: The Slow Death

Well, I'm ecstatic to be soooooo thoroughly wrong. These 3 songs and 35 minutes are quite simply the best thing Majestic Downfall have ever done. And out of the 100+ albums I've heard (so far) this year, its easily the best of the bunch. It has a little bit of everything: doom, death, grind, emotion, change of pace, peaks and valleys. Heck, even it's softer moments (when you can breathe) only help to accentuate it's overall brutality. It's masterfully written and beautifully put together. Everything sounds so good, lush and organic. "Dark Lullaby" features the best riff Jacobo has ever come

Dynfari : Sem skugginn - Genre : Metal albums reviews

Release posted: by   on  

Dynfari : Sem skugginn


Dynfari : Sem skugginn

Band name: Dynfari

There is an almost depressive/suicidal black metal feel as the album opens with Glötun, with the sounds of a conversation happening against a haunting backdrop of organs, and as the track progressed things started to get even darker and more hopeless, as doom-paced guitar riffs soon greet the listener. And things like this make Sem Skugginn feel almost like a funeral march that never ends with the crushing guitars and the heavy percussions, and that sorrowful and mournful atmosphere that drenches the listener from the start of Sem Skugginn till the end. Each of the instruments are utilised

Dynfari : Vegferð tímans - Genre : Metal albums reviews

Dynfari : Vegferð tímans


Dynfari :  Vegferð tímans

Band name: Dynfari

With five years of career, the Icelandic metallers Dynfari are releasing the beautiful third full-length “Vegferð Tímans” – that means ‘journey of time’ – via Code666 Records. Dynfari are not a band that makes us suddenly discern what they play… If the first track, “Ljósið” (working as an intro), wanders between rock-oriented compact riffs and dissonant loose notes, the second one, “Óreiða”, takes us into a more depressive and melancholic atmospheric metal that starts to be slow, but then bursts into a repressive and sad fury worthy of the most modern black metal. There are also incursions
