Dystersol are a band from Austria that plays a mixture of folk and melodic death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "The Fifth Age of Man" which was released by WormHoleDeath Records.
Pagan war horns start off the album before going into more of a heavier and symphonic direction which also introduces grim black metal vocals onto the recording while the music also mixes in a great amount of modern death metal elements in the riffs and growls along with some clean vocals also being used at times.
A great amount of folk music elements can be heard throughout the recording while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion along with some female vocals also being added onto some of the tracks and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can also be heard as well as the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses clean playing can also be heard briefly on a couple of tracks and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Dystersol plays a musical style that takes folk, symphonic black, melodic death and modern metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the five ages of man as described in Greek Mythology.
In my opinion Dystersol are a very great sounding modern mixture of folk, black and melodic death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fifth Age Of Man" "Winterking" "Children Of The Wasteland" and "End Game". 8 out of 10.
