Sorrow Enthroned are a solo project from Hartford, Connecticut that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording plays a melodic and brutal mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of his self released 2021 ep "The Grave of Endless Writhing".
A classical music orientated intro starts off the ep before going into a heavier direction while the slower sections of the songs also add in elements of doom metal. Vocals are a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams along with some dark sounding melodies also being added into some of the guitar riffing.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can also be heard while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. Synths are also mixed in with the heavier sections of the music at times along with the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style, a lot of the songs is also heavily rooted in the 90's era and the tracks also have their brutal moments, as the recording progresses a brief use of clean playing can also be heard.
On this recording Sorrow Enthroned plays a style of blackened death emtal that is very melodic and brutal as well as being heavily rooted in the 90's era. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover Occultism, Darkness, Evil and Horror themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sorrow Enthroned and if you are a fan of brutal and melodic black and death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ever Cursed" "Gnawed And Torn" and "Sins Unforgiven". 8 out of 10.
