Vitriol are a band from Portland, Oregon that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Pain Will Define Their Death" which will be re-issued in November by Everlasting Spew Records with a bonus track.
A very heavy and brutal sound starts off the ep while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them as well as the vocals being mostly death metal growls and the music has its roots in the mid 90's to early 2000's.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some black metal screams also being added into certain sections of the recording as well as a small amount of dark sounding melodies also being utilized at times and the music always remains very heavy and brutal and on the closing track dissonant style guitar leads can also be heard briefly.
Vitriol plays a style of blackened death metal that goes back to the mid 90's and 2000's era of the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Vitriol are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pain Will Define Their Death" and "The Paring Of A Neck". 8 out of 10.
