Enfold Darkness are a band from Nashville, Tennessee that plays a melodic and technical mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Adversary Omnipotent" which will be released in July by The Artisan Era.
Ritualistic sounding synths start off the album and after the intro the music adds in high itched black metal s creams, fast riffs and blast beats along with some death metal growls also being utilized at times while the riffs also add in a great amount of technical elements along with a great amount of talent and skill.
When solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic and technical fashion while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and spoken word parts are also used briefly.
Some songs also bring in a small amount of clean guitars and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and one song is an instrumental and as the album progresses a brief use of classical music elements can be heard and they are also mix in with the heavier sections of the music and one track also adds in a small amount of melodic chants.
Enfold Darkness plays a musical style that takes melodic black metal and mixes it with technical death metal to create a sound of t heir own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Esoteric, War, Religion and Misanthropy themes.
In my opinion Enfold Darkness are a very great sounding melodic and technical 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 "Lairs Of The Ascended Masters" "The Sacred Daemonic" "Terror Of A Perilous Quest" and "Summoning The Archons". 8 out of 10..
