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.
