Sulphur Aeon are a band from Germany that plays a very melodic form of melodic blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Swallowed By The Ocean's Tide" which was released by FDA Rekotz.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing, as for the synths when they are utilized they bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine melodic sounding black metal riffs with brutal blackened death metal, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding black/death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from high pitched black metal screams to deep death metal growls, while the lyrics cover darkness, occult, Lovecraft and horror themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Sulphur Aeon are a very great sounding mixture of melodic black metal and death metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Incantation" "The Devil's Gorge" "Monolithic" and "Zombi'. RECOMMENDED BUY.
