Death Motif are a band from Texas that plays black'n'roll with a touch of progressive and doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "The Water" which will be rleeased in September.
A very heavy, raw and progressive sound starts off the ep along with some grim screams and a few seconds later blast beats can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with some elements of doom and sludge metal and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
A decent amount of melody can be heard quite a but throughout the recording and all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while some of the solos and leads also bring in a touch of rock'n'roll while the music is more rooted in more of a modern Norwegian influenced black metal sound and the last track is long and epic in length.
Death Motif plays a music style that is mostly rooted in black metal but also mixes in elements of progressive, doom metal and rock to create a style of t heir own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and poetic themes.
In my opinion Death Motif are a very great sounding black'n'roll band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "His And Hers". 8 out of 10.
