Gospelheim are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of black, post and gothic metal and this is a review of their 2022 album "Ritual & Repetition" which will b e released in October by Prophecy Productions.
Clean playing starts off the album before going into a heavier musical direction while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. Vocals are done in mostly a clean goth metal style along with the faster sections of the songs also adding in a great amount of black metal elements and blast b eats.
Synths are also utilized quite a bit throughout the recording while influences of post metal are also utilized at times The songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody as well as the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style, female vocals can also be heard briefly and the slower sections of the album also ad d in touches of doom metal and some of the faster riffing also adds in a small amount of tremolo picking.
Gospelheim plays a musical style that takes black, post and gothic metal and mixes it with dark rock to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover existentialism silent horror movies, occultism and the morality of the human condition.
In my opinion Gospelheim are a very great sounding mixture of black, post and gothic metal and if you are a fan of t hose musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Satan Blues" "Into Smithereans" and "The Hall Of the Consumed". 8 out of 10.
