The Black Moriah are a band from Texas that plays a mixture of black and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2012 ep "Casket Prospects Promo".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine thrash and black metal together with some dark sounding melodies that bring a doom and death metal feeling to the music, while the lead guitars are very old school sounding black/thrash metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking to enhance the darkness that is coming out of the music.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black/thrash metal screams with some deep growls being utilized at times as well as a brief use of clean singing, while the lyrics cover dark and occult themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion The Black Moriah are a very great sounding hybrid of black and thrash metal and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Chained And Confined". RECOMMENDED.
