Paragon Zero are a band from Hungary that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a mixture of black, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2020 ep "Omaas" which was released by Loud Rage Music.
Clean playing starts off the ep along with some spoken word parts and drum beats a few seconds later. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them and elements of doom metal are also added into the slower sections of the songs.
Vocals are a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of blast beats and tremolo picking. Throughout the recording you can also hear a good balance between slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music also adding in a great amount of 90's influences but keeping it modern at the same time, the riffs also add in a great amount of melody and synths can also be heard briefly on the closing track.
On this recording Paragon Zero expands on the mixture of black, doom and death metal that they had established on their previous single. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Paragon Zero and if you are a fan of black, doom and death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Phosphorous Blaze" and "Grey Feast". 8 out of 10.
