Proscription are a band from Finland that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Conduit" which will be released on September 24th by Dark Descent Records.
Dark yet ritualistic sounding synths start off the album before going into more of a heavier and brutal musical direction. Vocals are mostly death metal growls along with some black metal screams also being utilized at times and the faster sections of the songs also add in a great amount of blast beats.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic style as well as having their chaotic moments at times along with the riffing also adding in some melodies at times, tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the faster riffing.
Proscription plays a style of blackened death metal that is very dark and brutal sounding as well as being influenced by both the modern and old school style. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism and Dark Spirituality themes.
In my opinion Proscription 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 "The Burning Sun" "Thy Black Nimbus Gate" and "To Reveal the Words Without Words". 8 out of 10.
