Sequestered Doom are a solo project from Germany that plays a mixture of atmospheric black, funeral doom metal and dark ambient and this is a review of his 2018 album "Hiems Symphonia" which was released as a joint effort between Kryrart, Depressive Illusions Records and Black Mystic Productions.
Dark ambient style synths start off the album while also mixing in with the heavier sections of the songs. Elements of funeral doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the music along with all of the drum beats also being programmed and the solos and leads are also done in a very dark style.
At times the music also captures the more atmospheric side of black metal while a couple of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. All of the music is also instrumental along with one of the songs also adding in a brief use of clean playing and the whole album also sticks to a slower direction.
Sequestered Doom plays a musical style that takes atmospheric black, funeral doom metal and dark ambient and mixes them together to create a sound of his own as well as keeping everything instrumental while the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion Sequestered Doom are a very great sounding mixture of atmospheric black, funeral doom metal and dark ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In The Shade Of The Great Forest" and "On The Hills Foldet in Mist". 8 out of 10.
