Sciolism are a band from New Zealand that plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of t heir 2018 ep "Released To Chaos" which was released by Visionaire Records.
A very heavy sound starts off the ep before going into a faster direction which also introduces blast beats onto the recording along with some death metal growls while the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the music also brings in a great amount of melody and black metal elements along with some screams also being added into certain sections of the recording and as the ep progresses a brief use of clean playing can also be heard on a couple of tracks.
Sciolism plays a musical style t hat takes melodic black and death metal and mixes them together to create a heavy recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Sciolism are a very great sounding melodic mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Released To Chaos" and "Experiential Empiricism". 8 out of 10.
