Astaroth Incarnate are a band from Toronto, Ontario, Canada that plays a very melodic form of blackened death metal along with some elements of thrash, groove and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Omnipotence - The Infinite Darkness" which will be released in September by CDN Records.
An almost silent soundscape starts off the ep along with some spoken word parts a few seconds later and after awhile powerful sounding bass guitars and drum beats are added onto the recording along with some melodic guitar leads and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
A lot of melodies can be heard in the guitar riffing while the riffs also mix in a great amount of thrash, groove and doom metal elements along with the vocals being a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as most of the tracks being very long and epic in length and at times the music gets very brutal and acoustic guitars are also used briefly
Astarath Incarnate plays a musical style that takes melodic black and brutal death metal and mixes it with some elements of thrash, groove and doom metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover fear, knowledge, punishment, strengthening, torture, judgement, enlightenment and occultism themes.
In my opinion Astaroth Incarnate a very great sounding melodic blackened death metal band with elements of thrash, groove and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Curse Of The Black Plague" and "Re-Creation". 8 out of 10.
