Minblod are a band from South Carolina that plays a mixture of depressive black and doom metal and this is a review of their 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 this 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 the synths when they 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 check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dark Mysteries" and "Heuristic Construct". RECOMMENDED BUY.
