Doomsday Ceremony is a Brazilian band that has been around for over 15 years but their second album, Black Heart from 2015, is my first exposure to them. They play a truly interesting combination of what is essentially Traditional Heavy Metal with twin guitars, pumping riffs and NWOBHM-inspired solos and Black Metal, mostly in the form of throaty rasps. The songwriting is quite good with plenty of hooks and the vocals are not the tortured wails you would find on a second-wave release, so Black Heart is a perfect stepping stone for someone looking to ease into the Black Metal pool (full of fire and brimstone, no doubt). Doomsday Ceremony makes me think of what Iron Maiden might sound like if Abbath had taken over after Di'Anno left. Black Heart isn't going to change the world but it is different and I like it. Check it out if some well-executed genre-crossing sounds good to you.
