Tetragrammaton/Demo MMXIII Review


  Tetragrammaton  are  a  band  from  Florida  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  with   a  musical style  that  combines  occult  black  metal, doom and  sludge  together and  this  is  a  review  of their  self  released  2013  demo.

  "Deluge"  begins  with  some  heavy  distortion  which  leads  to  some  slow,  heavy  and  dark  doom  metal  guitar  riffs  along  with some  drums  and  a  few  seconds  later  black  metal  screams  start  making  their  way  into  the  song  and  after  awhile  you  can  hear  some  dark  sounding  melodies  being  utilized  before  adding  in  some  guitar  leads  and  towards  the  end  the  song  starts  utilizing  some  sludge  style  shouts.

  "Tides  In  Coalesce"  begins  with  some dark  and  heavy  doom metal  guitar  riffs  along  with  some  drums  and  a  minute  later  you  can  hear  some  powerful  bass  guitars  and  melodic  riffing  which  also  leads  to  some  clean  singing  chants  before  going  into  black  metal  screams  and  then t he  music  gets  fast  with  some  blast  beats  and  primitive  guitar  riffing  being  used  briefly  before  going  into  a   mid  paced  direction  which  then  leads  to  the  song   switching  back  and  forth  between  slow  and  fast  parts.

  Song  lyrics  cover  darkness  and  occult  themes,  while  the  production  has  a  very  dark,  heavy,  raw  and  primitive  sound  while  you  can  still h ear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on this  ep.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Tetragrammaton  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  occult  black  metal  mixed  with  doom  and  sludge,  you  should  check  out  this  demo.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Tides  In  Coalesce".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
