Italy's Hiss From The Moat have returned with a new recording which shows the music going for a brutal style of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2022 album "The Way Out Of Hell" which was released by Distortion Music Group.
A very distorted sound starts off the album before going into a very fast and brutal direction which also utilizes a great amount of blast beats. Vocals are a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams along with some melodies also being added into some of the guitar riffing at times.
Tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the faster riffing while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style along with some of the mid tempo sections also adding in touches of a more mainstream metal style as well as some songs also adding in some aggressive shouts and the whole album sticks to a very heavy and brutal direction, all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them.
On this recording Hiss From The Moat takes the blackened style of death metal into more of a brutal direction. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Anti Christianity, Death and hatred themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Hiss From The Moat and if you are a fan of blackened death metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Way Out Of Hell" "Generation Of Cowardice" "All I Have" and "The Magnificent Vision". 8 out of 10.
