Singularity are a band from Arizona that plays a mixture of symphonic black metal and technical death metal and this is a review of their self released and self titled 2014 album.
A very melodic and symphonic sound starts off the album along with some grim black metal screams and deep death metal growls and after awhile the music speeds up and adds blast beats into certain sections of the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and they also add in a brief use of clean playing and spoken whispers on one of the tracks.
At times the music can be very progressive which they display very well on the instrumental and the solos and leads the band uses are in a very melodic musical direction and on the later tracks the band starts bringing in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with a few of the tracks being very long and epic in length and one of the later tracks brings in a sampled choir along with the synths using a variety of many different keys which also does not take away from the heavier elements and they also bring in s brief use of clean singing on a couple of the songs.
Singularity takes a very symphonic and melodic style of black metal and mixes it in with the more progressive and technical side of death metal to create a very different approach to the way black metal is played as well as helping the genre to evolve, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover science fiction and utopian themes.
In my opinion Singularity are a very great sounding mixture of symphonic black metal and technical death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Withdrawal of Salvation" "Monolith" "Utopian Flesh" and "The Resolution". 8 out of 10.
