Minblod/Apparition And Aberration/Humid Records/Depressive Illusions/2013 CD Review


  Minblod  are  a  band  from  South  Carolina  that  plays  a  mixture  of  depressive  black  and  doom  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of t heir  2013  album  "Apparition  And  Aberration"  which  was  released  as  a  joint  effort  between  Humid  Records  and  Depressive  Illusions.

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  playing  with  no  fast  drumming  or  blast  beats  being  present on t his  recording,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars,  as  for t he synths  when t hey  are  utilized  they  bring  a  very  atmospheric  and  dark  ambient  sound  to  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  riffs  that  combine  depressive  black  metal  with  doom  to  create  a  sound of  their  own  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording.

  Vocals  are  all  high  pitched  and  grim  sounding  depressive  black  metal  screams,  while  there  is  not  much  in  the  way  of  lyrics,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it   with  some  of  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  Minblood  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  depressive  black  metal  and  doom  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should c heck  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Dark  Mysteries"  and  "Heuristic  Construct".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
