Strigampire are a band from Quebec, Canada that plays a very melodic form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "One Fix, Nine Clouds & Six Feet Deep" which was released by PRC Music.
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them while the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody as well as the vocals bringing in a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard while the music is very heavily influenced by the Swedish style along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the riffs also bringing in a decent amount of tremolo picking.
As the album progresses some of the riffs and leads also bring in more of an 80's hard rock/metal style while one song also introduces clean playing onto the recording along with a later track also bringing in a brief use of spoken word parts and evil laughter and towards the end a small amount of clean guitars can also be heard.
Strigampire plays a style of blackened death metal t hat is very melodic in the Swedish style while the music also adds in a touch of 80's metal at times, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover melancholy, solitude, rage, bitterness and sorrow themes.
In my opinion Strigampire are a very great sounding melodic blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Only Hell I Know" "Dead of Night" "It's Up To You" and "Into Tale Of Woe". 8 out of 10.
