Agonia are a band from Portugal that plays a musical style they describe as being 'cataclismic doom' and this is a review of their 2016 cassette "O Adormercer Eterno" which was released by War Productions.
An atmospheric drone style intro starts off the cassette along with some avant garde elements being utilized and after the intro the music goes into more of a heavier doom metal direction which also utilizes melodies at times while the vocals are grim screams that also gives the music a touch of black metal.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion and clean playing can also be heard at times and some of the tracks are long and epic in length and some of the songs have an experimental approach to them and most of the music is instrumental and also remains true to a very slow style and melodic chanting can also be heard on the last track.
Agonia plays a form of doom metal that is very dark and heavy sounding while also having its experimental and avant garde moments as well as having a slight black metal influences that amkes the songs sound different and the production sounds very fark.
In my opinion Agonia are a very great sounding cataclismic doom metal band and if you are looking for something very different, you should check out t his cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Degenerescencia Suave" and "Agonia Triunfante". 8 out of 10.
