Drowning In Sorrow are a band from Brazil t hat plays funeral/depressive black metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 demo "Guide Yourself To The Negativism Convulsion".
"(Intro)Inside Of Darkness And Mind" begins the demo with dark depressive black metal guitar riffs and slow drum beats and a minute later it goes into a more rawer direction a long with some evil high pitched screams and as a minute goes by a small amount of clean guitars are added into the song.
"Liberating Illusion" opens up with clean guitars and a minute later depressive black metal guitar riffs, drums and high pitched grim screams kick in and the song sticks to more of a slow or mid paced black metal direction.
"A Letter From Suicide" starts up with some slow black/funeral doom metal guitar riffs and drums along with some deep growls a few seconds later that evolve into high pitched depressive black metal screams and a couple of minutes alter it goes more into a cleaner direction for a few seconds and then gets heavy again.
'Obsessive Love" kicks in with soft acoustic guitar playing and a minute later heavy and dark guitar riffs kick in along with drums and black metal vocals and a few minutes later another riff is added into the song before returning to a cleaner direction for a couple of seconds and then getting heavy again.
"Disorder" hits it off with soft acoustic guitar playing and a minute later dark, heavy and melodic guitar riffs kick in along with drums depressive sounding black metal screams and s ticking to a slower direction and the song closes with clean playing.
"Addictive Pain" makes it way in with clean guitar along with rain and thunder sounds and a minute later drums and depressive black metal vocals kick in and the song stays in the same direction throughout most of the song.
"Drowning In Sorrow" which is also the last song on the demo begins with soft and clean guitar playing and a minute later slow depressive black metal riffs, drums and suicidal screams start to make their presence known in the song.
Song lyrics cover dark, depressive and suicidal themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it along with a couple of songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Drowning In Sorrow are a very great sounding funeral/depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Letter From Suicide" and "Obsessive Love". RECOMMENDED BUY.
