Mithridaum are a band from the United States that plays a dissonant form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their album "Harrowing" which will be released in 2023 by Willowtip Records.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the album while the riffing also adds in a lot of dissonant structures. When the music speeds up a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats can be heard along with the vocals also being a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls and melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing.
All of the tracks are also very long and epic in length while spoken word parts can also be heard on a couple of songs. Clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Mithridaum plays a style of blackened death metal that is very dissonant sounding. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dissonance, despondency, isolation, entropy and abyss themes.
In my opinion Mithridaum are a very decent sounding dissonant blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMEDNED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sojourn" and "The passageway". 7 out of 10.
