A Soul Of Perdition are a solo project from Finland that plays a very melodic form of blackened death metal and this is a review of his self released 2016 album "Into The Formless Dawn".
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the album and after a few minutes the music starts to speed up a bit along with some death metal growls and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording and the music has a great mixture of both Finnish and Swedish influences.
Some of the tremolo picking gives the music a touch of black metal as well as some high pitched screams also being used at times and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and spoken word parts along with some clean singing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
A lot of modern metal elements can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some of the guitar solos and leads are very heavily influenced by traditional metal and the whole album also remains true to a very heavy and melodic musical direction from beginning to ending of the recording.
A Soul Called Perdition plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in melodic death metal but also mixes in elements of black, modern and traditional metal to create a style of his own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion A Soul Called Perdition are a very great sounding melodic blackened death metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "There is No Shelter" "Emptiness" and "We Walked In The Shadows". 8 out of 10.
