Encrypted are a band from Germany that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "The Purge" which was released by Star Spawn Society.
Distorted amp sounds start off the ep before going into a very fast and brutal direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and morbid sounding melodies while the vocals are mostly deep death metal growls along with the music also mixing in a great amount of black metal elements.
Most of the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and elements of doom/death metal can also be heard in the slower riffing and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion, a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Encrypted plays a style of blackened death metal that is very heavily rooted in the early 90's along with a touch of doom metal, the production sounds very dark and old school while the lyrics cover darkness themes.
In my opinion Encrypted are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Doomed" and "Order Of Purity". 8 out of 10.
