Oktor are a band from Poland that plays funeral doom metal with some death metal and atmospheric elements and this is a review of their 2014 album "Another Dimension Of Pain" which was released by Solitude Productions.
Classical music style pianos start off the album and after the intro the music starts going for more of a heavy doom metal sound along with a decent amount of depressive sounding melodies and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the vocals that are used are deep death metal growls.
Clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording and a good portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and some of the songs also bring in a small amount of spoken word parts and the pianos also make their return at times and there are also a couple of instrumental pieces.
At times clean singing can be heard and the solos and leads that are utilized are very dark and melodic and as the album progresses violins and other stringed instruments can be heard in certain sections of the recording and the songs also bring in a great amount of atmosphere and the whole album also sticks to a very slow musical direction.
Oktor plays a style of funeral doom/death metal that is very dark, melodic, heavy and depressive sounding and also mixes in a touch of classical, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover pain, sorrow, oblivion and despair.
In my opinion Oktor a very great sounding funeral doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Conscious Somatoform Paradise" "Mental Paralysis" and "Hemiparesis Of The Soul". 8 out of 10.
