Hadoth are a 1 man band from San Diego, California that plays a very depressive and atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2011 ep "Painful Assemble" which is all covers.
"Painful Assemble" which is a Be Persecuted cover begins with some slow depressive black metal guitar riffs and drums and a few seconds later grim sounding black metal screams make their way into the song and after a couple of minutes there is a brief use of guitar solos and leads being utilized.
'The Funeral Rain" which is a I Shalt Become cover begins with some dark and depressing sounding guitar riffs and drums and after a few seconds grim vocals make their presence known in the song and the song uses the same riff till the closing part.
"Dreams Blacker Than Death" which is an Xasthur cover begins with some drum beats before the dark and heavy guitar riffs kick in along with some vocals and after awhile the song gets more atmospheric sounding.
'Stiny" which is a Trist cover begins with some atmospheric and depressive black/doom metal guitar riffs and drums and then some vocals and atmospheric elements are added into the song which leads to the music going into a more mid paced direction for awhile before slowing down again and towards the end there is a brief use of melodic guitar leads being utilized.
"Painful Assemble (Demo)" is the same song as the beginning song but more raw sounding as well as having synths added in certain sections.
'The Funeral Rain (Demo) is the same song as the second one that was presented on this ep but with a more raw feeling to it.
Song lyrics cover darkness and depression themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound with the bass gutiars being mixed down low in the mix.
In my opinion Hadoth are a very great sounding atmospheric and depressive black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Painful Assemble" and "Stiny". RECOMMENDED BUY.
