France's solo project Abysmal Growls Of Despair have returned with a new recording that continues the funeral doom metal style of previous releases and this is a review of his 2016 album "Worst Putrid Tongue" which was released as a joint effort between Symbol Of Domination and More Hate Productions.
Tragic sounding keyboards start off the album and after a minute bass guitars kick in and are also use as a lead instrument replacing traditional guitars as well as adding in more of a funeral doom style and the vocals are mostly deep yet guttural death metal growls and the atmospheric and heavy parts are also mixed together.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length and elements of ambient can also be heard at times and as the album progresses acoustic guitars are also added on a few tracks and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
Abysmal Growls Of Despair creates another recording that remains true to the funeral doom metal style he has established on previous releases, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover Sumerian themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Abysmal Growls Of Despair and if you are a fan of funeral doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Enlil" and "Enki". 8 out of 10.
