Cult Burial are a band from the United Kingdom that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of black, doom, death and post metal and this is a review of their self released 2021 ep "Oblivion".
Synth orientated soundscapes start off the ep along with some playing a few seconds later while whispers are also utilized before going into a heavier direction. All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them as well as the slower sections of the songs also adding in elements of doom metal.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while death metal growls are also utilized at times. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style along with most of the tracks also being very long and epic in length and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard as well as the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody.
On this recording Cult burial remain true to the mixture of black, doom, death and post metal that they had established on their previous release. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording form Cult Burial and if you are a fan of black, doom, death and post metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Parasite". 8 out of 10.
