Withered Shades

Rated 4.09/5 (81.82%) (11 Votes)

Massive album of bellowing Doom/Death, leaning much more heavily on the Doom. Ophis meld a heavy-as-fuck guitar sound to some excellent riffing and an oppressive atmosphere of evil and decay. The vocals are a low growl highlighted with s few raspier parts. They aren't the greatest, but they don't detract. The heart of this is the big, big guitar sound and the big, big riffs. With the looong songs, this is much more Doom than just slow Death metal, and even approaches Funeral in places. Overall this is just a solid disc of pummeling Doom. Fans of old Morgion or like bands should check this out.
