Symphonies of Eternal Suffering and Damnation

Rated 1/5 (20%) (2 Votes)

First off I’ll say that I opted not to include a rating with this review as 10 minutes really isn’t that much to go on. Considering of course the first track is a seemingly out of place acoustic piece, leaving one ragin’ raw black metal tune along with a confusing mix of a track entitled Lieden. Basically this band (consisting of only one member actually) that promotes itself as being "black fucking metal!" chose to include only one track that I would plug under that label. The soft and soothing Laid to Rest (The Final Farewell) fades out unto the pounding fury of Damnation Black (how original of them). So unpolished it hurts guitar blazes over very electronic sounding drum blasts (couldn’t find any information on whether this was done by machine or not but I’m 99% sure) and the tortured screams are buried under layers of static that this demo could have really done without. It slows done in the middle, which I find causes the track to lose its momentum. The third track is a bit different. Acoustic guitar strums along as the vocalist screeches in pain as he spouts off in emo like fashion about love lost and heartbreak with a couple of heavy breaks thrown in for good measure. This is weird stuff for sure, but not weird enough to really leave the right kind of impression.
