Sulphur are a band from Norway that plays a traditional style of Norwegian black metal with elements of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Omens Of Doom" which was released by Dark Essence.
Clean guitar playing starts off the album along with some synths and bass guitars a few seconds later and after awhile melodic guitar leads make their presence known on the recording which are joined by grim black metal screams a few seconds later and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and clean singing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while some of the fast riffing uses a great amount of tremolo picking and later tracks bring in a great amount of death metal elements and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion.
Clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording while some tracks also use a small amount of death metal growls and some tracks are very long and epic in length and the songs also bring a sci fi atmosphere to the recording at times and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts on one of the songs and as the album progresses a brief use of clean playing is brought onto the recording.
Sulphur plays a musical style that takes a modern form of Norwegian black metal and mixes it in with death metal influences and progressive elements to create a style of t heir own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover imminent destruction, doom, Satanism and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Sulphur are a very great sounding mixture of black and death metal with some progressive elements and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out t his band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Force of Our Fall" "The Devil's pyre" and "Rise Of The Mushroom Clouds". 8 out of 10.
