Beneath Oblivion are a band from Ohio that plays a mixture of atmospheric sludge and funeral doom metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "The wayward And The Lost" which will be released on March 28th by Weird Truth Productions.
Clean playing starts off the album along with some drum beats a few seconds later and after awhile the music goes into more of a heavier direction while the riffs also bring in a great amount of dark and depressive melodies as well as the high pitched screams adding in a touch of black metal.
A great amount of funeral doom metal elements can be heard in the music while the riffs also bring in the heaviness of sludge along with all of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as some death metal growls also being utilized at times, spoken word parts and clean vocals are also added on some of the songs as well as the guitar leads being done in a very melodic fashion and atmospheric synths are also added into certain sections of the recording and all of the music sticks to a slow direction.
Beneath Oblivion plays a musical style that takes atmospheric sludge and funeral doom metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover sorrow, death and melancholy themes.
In my opinion Beneath Oblivion are a very great sounding mixture of atmospheric sludge and funeral doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Lair's Cross' and "Satyr". 8 out of 10.
