Scarlet Oath are a band from New Brunswick, Canada that plays a blackened mixture of doom and gothic metal and this is a review of their self released 2022 album "Where Their Worm Dieth Not".
A very dark and apocalyptic sound starts off the album along with some clean playing a few seconds later which also return on some of the later tracks. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style and keyboards can also b e heard quite a bit throughout the recording.
Spoken word parts can also b e heard at times while the riffs also ad d in a great amount of melody. Elements of doom metal can also b e heard in the slower sections of the songs along with the vocals also adding in a great amount of black metal screams and the faster sections of the songs also add in a lot of blast beats.
When female vocals are added into the music they also give the songs more of a gothic metal touch. All of the tracks are also very long and epic in length as well as some growls also being added into certain sections of the recording, the songs also add in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and clear male vocals can also be heard at times and tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the faster riffing. The production sounds very professional while th e lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Scarlet Oath are a very great sounding mixture of black, death, doom and gothic metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Where Their Worm Dieth Not" and "Cursed Earth". 8 out of 10.
