New Jersey's hath have returned with a new recording which shows the music going for more of a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their album "All That Was Promised" which will be released in 2022 by Willowtip Records.
Clean playing and dark soundscapes start off the album before going into a heavier direction while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them. Spoken word parts can also be heard briefly along with the faster sections of the songs also add in a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats.
Death metal growls are also a very huge part of the recording while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark style along with the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody at times as well as the music also adding in a great amount of black metal elements.
Clear vocals can also be heard on a couple of tracks along with some high pitched screams also being added into some parts of the album as well as the music also having its atmospheric moments, one song also adds in a brief use of classical guitars and a couple of the songs are also long and epic in length. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover enduring change and the promises made to us in life, broken or otherwise.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Hath and if you are a fan of blackened death metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Million Violations" "losis" "Death Complex" and "Name Them Yet Build No Monument". 8 out of 10.\
