𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Hateful groovy/death riffs, filled with the deepest of despair and blackened hooks & melodic solos, with a marriage of hell-bent bass licks
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Deep death growls, that are harsh & cruel
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Hateful slow/mid-tempo groovy bone-crushing beats and raw blast-beats.
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: I'm honoured to featuring Acheronita Styx again, with their new single for their upcoming album "Shadow and Flame."
Delved yourself into the abyss of darkness, of an amalgamation of extreme metal & brutalization, of deliverance in one cup of rotten soup
This single and the band music/songs not kept the same, so it's never a dull moment, listening to this band, What I find with this new single, you be mesmerized with their brutal sound, then engulfed with sharp melodic solo riffs.
Ever the music is not fast, or to slow, it as a nice pace to the single, Grant's growls are very clean (rough around the edges) & understandable, then Paul's axe playing is impressive.
*impressive from start to end*
*Lamb of God meets Death/Groove Metal*
*Northumberland/Geordie bleak & sorrow serenade*
Brutal & Extreme
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: I'm unsure, the artwork, I've found on the band's Facebook, is the correct artwork, I get this Silence of lambs vibe. I love the concept of the colours, the stargaze look and the colourful flame, just breathily beautiful
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: The artwork and the whole single.
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: none!
