Fecund Betrayal are a band from Illinois that plays an atmospheric form of funeral doom metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Depths That Buried The Sea" which was released by Metallic Media.
Atmospheric sounding synths start off the album that also gives the music an ambient feeling and after the intro the music gets more symphonic before adding in heavier guitars along with some guttural death metal growls while also remaining atmospheric and adding in a primitive style of doom metal.
A good portion of the tracks are long and epic in length and you can also hear clean playing and melodic singing and spoken word parts being utilized in certain sections of the recording and the riffs also use a decent amount of melody and as the album progresses classical guitars can be heard in certain sections of the recording and one of the tracks brings in high pitched screams that gives the music a black metal feeling.
In my opinion Fecund Betrayal are a very great sounding atmospheric funeral doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Poison Of Life" "Riders of Death" and "Eternal Hiatus". 8 out of 10.
