Descent Into Maelstrom are a solo project from Italy that plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of his self titled and self released 2017 album.
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the album and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording along with the faster sections of the songs bringing in a great amount of blast beats while the vocals are mostly death metal growls a nd the riffs also use a great amount of melody.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while classical guitars can also be heard briefly and after awhile the music starts utilizing more melodic black metal elements along with a few screams and the songs also bring in a great amount of Swedish influences and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and a couple of songs are all instrumental.
Descent Into Maelstrom plays a musical style that takes the melodic forms of black and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Descent Into Maelstrom are a very great sounding melodic mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Everything Against" "Storm And Assault" and "Atavistic Enemies". 8 out of 10.
