Rapheumets Well are a band from North Carolina that has been featured before in this zine and plays a progressive and symphonic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Enders Door" which was released by test Your Metal Records.
Symphonic sounding keyboards start off the album and operatic choirs are also used briefly along with some elements of classical music and they also mix in with the heavier sections of the music while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Vocals are a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams while all of t he musical instruments sounding very powerful and the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody along with female vocals also being added into certain sections of the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts,
Some tracks also bring in a small amount of spoken word parts and as the album progresses acoustic guitars are added into certain sections of the recording along with the music getting progressive at times and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length while some of the leads also add in some technical touches and a couple of tracks are instrumental.
Rapheumets Well creates another recording that remains true to the progressive and symphonic mixture of black and death metal from previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover science fiction themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Rapheumets Well and if yuo are a fan of symphonic and progressive black and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Traveler" "Secrets Of The Demigods" "The Diminished Strategist" and "Unvieling The Sapiant". 8 out of 10.
