Florida's Tetragrammaton have returned with a new recording which shows them continuing their mixture of occult black metal, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 ep "Descendere".
A very fast and raw black metal sound starts off the ep along with some blast beats before going more into a slower doom metal direction along with some deep screams which also leads to the band mixing doom and black metal together along with some elements of sludge and all 3 of the tracks are around or close to the 10 minute mark.
After awhile melodic chanting can be heard briefly in certain sections of the recording giving the music more of an occult and ritualistic feeling and there is also a perfect balance between fast black metal parts and slow doom metal parts and there are also a small amount of psychedelic noises being utilized at times which also gives the music and avant garde feeling at times and there is also a concept of sorts with all 3 songs with the title tracks all being called sermons and the last track has almost a punk rock feeling in the beginning riff.
Tetrgrammaton remain true to their mixture of occult black metal, sludge and doom metal on this recording creating 3 songs that are very dark and heavy, the production has a very dark, raw and heavy sound while the lyrics cover occult themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Tetragrammaton and if you are a fan of occult black metal, sludge and doom metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Third Sermon". 8 out of 10.
