Sorrow Enthroned are a solo project from Hartford, Connecticut that plays a mixture of melodic black and brutal death metal and this is a review of his self released 2020 album "Thelemic Grimoires" .
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style. The vocals also bring in a mixture of black metal screams and death metal along with the music also having its brutal moments and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the faster riffing while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. The riffs also add in a great amount of melody along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the music also adding in a decent mixture of both old school and modern influence.
, Some of the slower sections of the tracks also add in a touch of doom/death metal along with some of the mid tempo sections also adding in the brutality of slam death metal and horror movie style synths and spoken word samples can also be heard on the closing track. The production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover Occultism, Satanism, Thelema and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Sorrow Enthroned are a very great sounding mixture of melodic black and brutal death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sins Of The Carnal Man" "Black Horned Gods" "Hand Of Aiwass" and "Thelemic Grimoires". 8 out of 10.
