Profane Burial are a band from Norway that plays a very symphonic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "The Rosewater Park Legend" which will be released in March by Apathia Records.
Choir style vocals start off the album along with some symphonic elements which also mixes in with the more heavier and melodic side of the music while the faster sections of the songs bring in a great amount of blast beats along with the vocals being mostly grim black metal screams.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion while cinematic elements can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with most of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow mid paced and fast parts while female vocals can also be heard at times along with a great amount of orchestral structures along with the riffing also getting very modern and technical in some parts of the songs.
Profane Burial plays a style of black metal that is very symphonic, melodic and cinematic sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and witchcraft themes.
In my opinion Profane Burial are a very great sounding symphonic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Tower Bell" "A Different Awakening (A Proclamation By A Priest)" and "The Tale The Witches Wrote". 8 out of 10.
