Black Shroud are a band from Ohio that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Death Culture" which was released by War Productions.
A very dark and heavy sound stars off the album while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are presented on the recording. When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the vocals are mostly cavernous sounding death metal growls.
The riffs also add in a great amount of black metal elements while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the slower sections of the music showing an influence of doom metal. A decent amount of tremolo picking can also be heard in the faster sections of the songs.
The riffs also adding in a small amount of melody at times and as the album progresses a brief use of spoken word samples can be heard along with the music always sticking to a more brutal style. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are a concept album based upon the various burial rituals around the world.
In my opinion Black Shroud are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tower Of Silence' and "Inhumation". 8 out of 10.
