Indoctrine are a band from Finland that plays a very melodic form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Unto This Fall" which was released by Inverse Records.
The ep begins with an intro which utilizes acoustic guitars along with a dark atmosphere and melodic guitars which leads to a mixture of melodic and black metal vocals and on the nest song the music goes into a more melodic death metal direction along with a mixture of mid paced and fast parts as well as death metal style screams and after awhile solos and blast beats are added into the music.
As the ep progresses you can hear traces of melodic Swedish black metal being mixed in with the death metal sound as well as bringing in a small amount of spoken word parts and you can also hear traces of traditional metal being utilized in the solos and leads.
On these 5 songs and intro that are displayed on this ep Indoctrine take a melodic style of death metal and bring in black metal influences as well as a great amount of heaviness to their music and while this is not something very original this band do play some great quality melodic death metal.
Song lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Indoctrine are a very decent sounding melodic blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Undying" and "Synthetic Existence". 7/8 out of 10.
