GoreThrone are a band from Grand Rapids, Michigan that plays a blackened form of deathcore and this is a review of their self released 2021 ep "The Descension".
A very dark, heavy and brutal sound starts off the ep while the vocals are mostly blackened screams along with a few growls. Deathcore style breakdowns are also added into the mid tempo sections of the songs along with the faster sections of the songs also adding in a decent amount of blast beats.
Distorted and dark sounding melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing while spoken word parts can also be heard briefly. The songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with most of the tracks also being under 3 minutes and one track also adds in a brief use of clean playing, the vocals also have their guttural moments.
GoreThrone plays a musical style that takes black metal and deathcore and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover darkness and war themes.
In my opinion GoreThrone are a very great sounding blackened deathcore band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Descension" "Celestial Noose" and "Grim". 8 out of 10.
