Among Gods are a band from Norway that has been featured before in this zine that plays a mixture of death and doom metal with some black metal influences and this is a review of their 2014 album "Monument" which will be released by PRC Music.
Drums a melodic yet melodic sound and death metal growls start off the album along with a heavy dose of doom and when solos are utilized the recording has a more modern feeling to it while the music for the most part is heavily rooted in the early 90's along with some powerful sounding bass lines and the screams add in traces of black metal.
In certain sections of the recording you can hear a small amount of out of key clean singing being utilized for a few seconds and in later tracks the music speeds up a bit and brings in a small amount of blast beats along with some element s of melodic death metal while the main focus is on a more slow doom/death metal sound and at times you can hear thrash metal style guitar being added in some of the riffing and on one of the tracks you can also hear a small amount of acoustic guitars.
Among Gods stick to the sound they had on the last recording and create another heavy old school doom/death metal album while also having a good amount of diversity to t hem, the production sounds very powerful and makes the old school elements sound even heavier along with some lyrics that cover some really dark topics.
In my opinion this another great sounding recording from Among Gods and if you are a fan of old school doom/death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Malstrom" "Summon Them Black" "Eternal" and "Feathers Of Doom". 8 out of 10.
