Empyreal Sorrow are a band from Germany that plays a melodic and blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 album "PRÆY" which will be released in November.
Clean playing start off the album before going into a heavier musical direction which also introduces melodic guitar leads and solos onto the recording. Synths can also be heard briefly while the vocals are a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls along with the riffs also adding in a lot of melody.
All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while the music also brings in a great amount of 90's era Swedish influences. When the music speeds up on a couple of songs blast beats can also be heard along with one track also introducing clean vocals and more modern elements onto the album as well as some clean playing also making a return in certain sections of the recording.
Empyreal Sorrow plays a musical style that takes the melodic forms of black and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover devastation themes.
In my opinion Empyreal Sorrow are a very great sounding melodic mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Thrown Into The Fire" "Come Down With Me" "Scars Of Old" and "A Night Without Armor". 8 out of 10.
