Strings Of Distorted Doom - Doom Trials - Reviewed By BlackenedDeathMetalZine ! Check it out here at this link: http://bringerofdeathzine.blogspot.com/2021/10/strings-of-distorted-doomdoom.html
Strings Of Distorted Doom are a band from New York that plays a blackened form of doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2021 album "Doom Trials".
Rain and thunder sounds start off the album while ritualistic spoken word parts and guitar sounds are added into a few seconds later before going into a heavier doom metal direction. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with the solos and leads also being done in a very dark yet melodic style.
Growls can also be heard at times while some of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with one track also adding in a brief use of fast playing and blast beats as well as the riffs also adding in a small amount of dark sounding melodies at times.
Ritualistic soundscapes, synths can also be heard briefly on a couple of tracks and as the album progresses a brief use of acoustic guitars can also be heard along with the album also closing with a cover of Venom's "Witching Hour". The production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover occultism, Horror and Darkness themes along with one track also being written in German.
In my opinion Strings Of Distorted Doom are a very great sounding mixture of black and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cabin In The Woods" "The Attic" "Witch Craft" and "The Cellar". 8 out of 10. - BlackenedDeathMetalZine
