Dawn Of Tyrants are a band from Toronto, Ontario, Canada that plays a blackened form of death/doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 ep "Breeding Ruin".
Dark sounding synths start off the ep before going into a heavier musical direction which also introduces death metal growls onto the recording and the riffs also use melodies at times and the music is very heavily rooted in the early 90's and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
Clean singing can be heard briefly and when it is utilized it gives the music more of a ritualistic feeling and the guitar solos bring in a very dark yet melodic old school black/death metal style and after awhile grim black metal screams are added onto the recording while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
A couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the slower sections of the tracks are very heavily influenced by doom metal and clean guitars are also used for a few seconds and they close the ep with a cover of Celtic Frost's "Dethroned Emperor" and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Dawn Of Tyrants plays a musical style that takes the early 90's styles of black, doom and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and old school while the lyrics cover totalitarianism, and death worship themes.
In my opinion Dawn Of Tyrants are a very great sounding mixture of black, doom, and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Some Above, Most Below" and "Fallen Figure Of Futility". 8/5 out of 10.
