Singularity are a band from Tempe, Arizona that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a symphonic and technical mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Place Of Chains" which will be released in October by the Artisan Era.
Symphonic sounds start off the album and also mixes in with the heavier sections of the music. The riffs also add in a decent amount of melody while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic and technical style and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be head.
Vocals bring in a mixture of grim black metal screams and guttural death metal growls along with the riffs also getting very technical at times. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some spoken word parts also being added into certain sections of the recording.
A couple of the tracks are also very long and epic in length as well as all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them, some of the faster riffs also add in a decent amount of tremolo picking and as the album progresses a brief use of acoustic guitars can also be heard and a small amount of clean vocals are also added onto the closing track. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover enslavement and science fiction themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Singularity and if you are a fan of symphonic and technical black and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Victory Or Death" "Consume And Assume" and "As Dark As This Nefarious Night". 8 out of 10.
