DØDSKVAD are a music project from Norway that plays a tripped out and old school form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2020 demo "Krønike I" which will be released in April by Caligari Records.
Dark soundscapes and marching sounds start off the demo while also introducing synths onto the recording before going into a heavier direction. The riffs also add in a decent amount of melody along with the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic yet old school style.
Vocals are a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams while the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's era. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with the slower sections of the songs bring in touches of doom metal and most of the songs stick to either a slow or mid tempo style and when the music finally speeds up a small amount of blast beats can also be heard.
In my opinion DØDSKVAD are a very great sounding tripped out and old school blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Pakt Med Dypet". 8 out of 10.
