Serotonin are a band from the Netherlands that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 ep "L 'Enfer Gris".
Spoken word samples start off the ep before going into a heavier direction which also introduces black metal screams and death metal growls onto the recording while the faster sections of the songs bring in a great amount of blast beats along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while melodic vocals are also used briefly along with the faster riffing also bringing in a decent amount of tremolo picking and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and atmospheric synths are also used briefly, there is also a brief use of clean guitars on a couple of songs.
Serotonin plays a style of blackened death metal that is very original and different sounding, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover hell as an absence of joy.
In my opinion Serotonin are a very great sounding original blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Hosannas From The Basement Of Hell". 8 out of 10.
