C.B Murdoc are a band from Sweden that plays a very technical and progressive mixture of melodic black, death and groove metal with elements of sludge, and jazz and this is a review of their 2016 album "Here Be Dragons" which will be released in June by ViciSolum Productions.
Drum beats start off the album along with some clean playing and acoustic guitars a few seconds later which also leads up to melodic vocals also being added onto the recording along with some heavy riffs that also use a decent amount of melody and after the intro the music gets more fast along with some brutal blast beats.
Black metal screams can be heard in some parts of the songs along with a lot of the music being very technical while t he vocals also bring in death metal growls at times and after awhile elements of groove and prog metal are added onto the recording while t he solos and leads remain true to a technical style.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and elements of sludge and jazz can be heard on some of the tracks and some of the songs are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses clean playing also makes a return in certain sections of the recording and some songs also bring in a small amount of avant garde elements while some songs also add in a touch of djent.
C.B Murdoc plays a musical style that takes melodic black, progressive and technical death and mixes it with sludge and groove metal to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion C.B Murdoc are a very great sounding melodic, technical and progressive mixture of black, death and groove metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Debt Of Guilt" "The Green" "Diamonds" and "Objecting projection". 8 out of 10.
