Finland's Desolate Shrine have returned with a new recording that continues their blackened mixture of death and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Deliverance From The Godless Void" which will be released in November by Dark Descent Records.
A very fast and brutal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them as well as the vocals being a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams and elements of doom metal can be heard in the slower riffing.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion along with most of the tracks also being very long and epic in length and as the album progresses a brief use of dark sounding synths, whispers and acoustic guitars can also be heard as well a s the main focus being more on a heavier style.
Desolate Shrine creates another recording that remains true to the blackened mixture of death and doom metal from previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Misanthropy, Nihilism, Negativity and Occultism themes,
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Desolate Shrine and if you are a fan of black, death and doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Primordial One" "Demonic Evocation Prayer" and "...Of Hell". 8 out 10.
