Shroud Of Desondency/Objective Isolation/2011 CD Review

Shroud Of Despondency are band from Wisconsin that has been interviewed as well as had their current album reviewed before by this ine that plays a very progressive form of black metal and this is a reviewed of their self released album that was recorded in 2009 but was unreleased until noe "Objective Isolation" which was self released by this band.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats while the keyboards are very dark and atmospheric sound with lot of weird avant garde effects, as for the bass playing it has a very dark and distorted feel to it with some weird progressive black metal riffing.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast black metal riffs that are also very progressive and melodic sounding with somewhat of a thrash edge at times, while the lead guitars are very progressive, weird and melodic sounding guitar solos, as for the classical guitars when they are used to use finger picking and full chords to bring a very dark and haunting sound to the music.

Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some deep growls being thrown in at times and some spoken word passages along with some clean singing female vocals being used on one song, while the lyrics cover death and depression, as for the production it has a very heavy, dark and raw sound to it.

In my opinion this is another good album from Shroud Of Desponcency and if you where a fan of their previous releases, you will not be dissapointed. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "An Opposing Shore" "My Carrion" and "Silence After The Downfall". RECEMMONDED BUY.
