Sigil are a band from Calgary, Alberta, Canada that plays a mixture of black, death and sludge metal and this is a review of their 2019 demo "Demonstration MMXIX" which will be released on July 15th by Funeral Trance.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the demo along with all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them. The vocals bring in more of a hardcore and sludge style as w ell as adding in a few growls at times and when the music speeds up a great amount of black metal style tremolo picking can be heard.
During the faster sections of the songs a decent amount of blast beats can be heard along with the songs also bringing in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Elements of post metal can also be heard in the bands musical style and the guitar leads have more of a dissonant approach to them.
Sigil plays a musical style that takes black, sludge, death metal and hardcore and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover alchemy themes.
In my opinion Sigil are a very great sounding mixture of black, sludge, death metal and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "EEldritch". 8 out of 10.
