Vaultwraith are a band from Springfield, Missouri that plays a mixture of black, doom, death, thrash, speed and heavy metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Light The Candle In Honour Of Devils" which will be released on Halloween by Hells Headbangers.
A very heavy and old school sound starts off the album along with some black metal screams a few seconds later. Demonic death metal growls are also utilized at times while the music also adds in a good mixture of both 80's and 90's influences as well as the riffs also adding in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they also remain true to an old school tradition as well as also having their melodic moments. Horror movie inspired keyboards are also added into some parts of the music while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs along with the music also adding in some speed, thrash and traditional metal influences at times and when the music finally speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can also be heard. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover murder, warlocks, witch-burning's, cursed nuns and occult burials.
In my opinion Vaultwraith are a very great sounding mixture of black, doom, death, thrash, speed and heavy metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Accused Sorceress" "The Divien Butcheress" "All The Black Arts At Her Command" and "Nachtober Necromancy". 8/5 out of 10.
