Plague Pit are a band from Dublin, Ireland that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2018 demo "MMXVIII".
Fire sounds start off the demo before going into a very fast and brutal direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats along with the vocals being mostly death metal growls while the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's and black metal screams are also used at times.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the riffs also bring in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and touches of doom/death can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs as well as closing the album with a very dark sounding intro.
Plague Pit plays a musical style that goes back to the 90's era of black and death metal, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover Satanism, Demons and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Plague Pit are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Miasmatic Fervor" "Ecstatic Satanic Adoration" and "Obsessed With The unholy". 8 out of 10.
