Pyre Of Descent are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of black and doom metal with some gothic rock elements and this is a review of their 2020 ep "Peaks Of Eternal Light" which will be released in February by Terror From Hell Records.
Clean playing starts off the ep while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic yet progressive style. All of the tracks are also very long and epic in length along with all of the musical instruments on the recording also having a very powerful sound to them and the clear vocals also add in a touch of goth rock.
The riffs also add in a great amount of melody while the slower sections of the songs also bring in elements of doom metal. The grim side of the vocals also add in touches of black metal along with the music also sticking mostly to a slow or mid tempo direction and some of the solos and leads also show an influence of classic metal and as the ep progresses a brief use of female vocals can also be heard, blast beats and fast playing can also be heard briefly on the closing track.
Pyre Of Descent plays a musical style that takes black, doom and gothic metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and melancholic themes.
In my opinion Pyre Of Descent are a very great sounding mixture of black, doom and gothic metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Eyes Of The Blind" and "To See Into The Dark (VI Wheel)". 8 out of 10.
