Empyreal Sorrow is a new band, formed in 2020 according to their Facebook page, that not a lot of additional information is available about. Their webpage has a German extension and the members' names sound German so I'm going with Germany as their country of origin. Regardless, these guys play a rather aggressive brand of melodic death on their debut album, PRAEY. The guitars are a buzz saw of riffs and there is a range of harsh vocals, from guttural growls to rasping screams, so there is no lack of aggression in Empyreal Sorrow's music even though their melodic side is undeniable. There are a few lighter moments on PRAEY, like the acoustic intro, but in general the album is a blur of music and I couldn't always tell when one song ended and the next began, if I missed the break between them. The album is fine while on but not overly memorable if you aren't a dyed-in-the-wool death metal fan and, to my admittedly unrefined ears, it sounds a lot like what I've heard from Amon Amarth, Kataklysm, Arch Enemy, etc. If you are into harsh but melodic death, you will probably find something to like here.
