Deathcult/The Living, The Dying, And The Damned/2009 CD Review


  This  is  a  review  of  a  comeback  album  from Deathcult  with  the  musical  style  being  avant  garde  doom/death  metal  with  a  blackened  edge  and  this  the  recording  is  called  "The  Living,  The  Dying  And  The  Damned"  which  was  self  released  in  2009.

    Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  thrown  into  the  music  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  is  coming  out  of  the  guitars  and  at  times  they  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to t hem.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow, mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  death  and  doom  metal  together  with  a  slight black  metal  edge  as  well  as  some  soft  and  clean  playing  which  gives  the  music  an  avant  garde  along  with  some  dark  sounding  melodies  being t hrown  into  the  heavier  side  of  the  riffing,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  dark  and  melodic  sounding  death  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads,  as  for  the  acoustic  guitars  which  are  only  used  on  the  intro  they  use  finger  picking  and  full  chords  to  enhance  the  darkness  that  is  coming  out  of  the  music.

  Vocals are  all  deep  death  metal  growls,  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness,  occultism,  anti  christian  and  suicidal  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark, r aw  and  primitive  sound  to  it  while  you  can  still  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  this  was  a  great  album  from  Deathcult  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  dark  sounding  death/doom  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Nada"  "Predicting  The  End  Of  The  World"  "Impure"  and  "The  Damned".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
