Crucify Me Gently are a band from Ukraine that plays a blackened form of deathcore and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "Circles" which will be released on November 29th.
A very fast and melodic sound along with a great amount of blast beats start off the album along with some aggressive vocals that seem to be influenced by hardcore and post metal while death metal growls can also be heard at times and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
When solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some metalcore elements in the mid tempo parts of the songs and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and you can also hear a great amount of black metal influences throughout the album.and as the album progresses high pitched screams can also be heard on some songs and a couple of later tracks also brings in a brief use of keyboards as well as a few seconds of operatic female vocals.
Crucify Me Gently plays a musical style that takes black metal and deathcore and mixes them together to create something very original, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark, occult and angry themes.
In my opinion Crucify Me Gently are a very great sounding blackened deathcore band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Occultist" "Out Of Time" "Fame Will Fade" and "Circles". 8 out of 10.
