Atrament are a band from California that plays a mixture of black, death metal, d beat and crust and this is a review of their 2015 demo which was released by Sentinent Ruin Laboratories.
A very distorted, heavy and raw crust sound starts off the demo along with some grim screams that have a black metal tinge to them as well as some growls and the music also mixes in a great amount of d beats and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the faster sections also use blast beats.
When melodies are utilized they bring in a Swedish style of death metal to the bands musical style and crust and d beat are the main styles the band sticks to while elements of death and black metal are still a very huge part of the band s musical style and on the second track thrash influences can be heard briefly.
Atrament plays a musical style that takes crust and d beat and mixes them in with black and death metal influences to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover angry and real life themes.
In my opinion Atrament are a very great sounding mixture of black, death metal, d beat and crust and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out t his band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "World Of Ash". 8 out of 10.
