Dystopian Wrath are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a symphonic form of black/death metal and this is a review of their self titled 2014 ep which was released by UKEM Records.
A very epic and symphonic sound starts off the ep before going into a faster direction along with some grim screams and brutal blast beats which they also mix in with the symphonic elements as well as adding in death metal growls at times and after awhile the music starts incorporating more melodies into the songs which also bring in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts..
As the ep progresses you can hear more traces of thrash and death metal being added into the bands symphonic black metal sound and it also gives the music more of an aggressive sound than most bands of this genre and when solos and leads are added into the music they are very melodic sounding as well as demonstrating a great amount of skill and talent and one of the tracks also brings in a brief use of spoken word samples while one of the alter tracks brings in a small amount of acoustic guitars and the band also closes the ep with a cover of bathory's "Woman Of Dark Desires".
Dystopian Wrath take a very symphonic and melodic style of black metal and mixes it with the aggression of death metal which also makes there music more heavy than most symphonic black metal bands, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Dystopian Area Philosophy and Psychology.
In my opinion Dystopian Wrath are a very great sounding symphonic black/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Suffering State" and "Black Sea of Tree's". 8 out of 10.
