Root are a band from the Czech Republic that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of black, dark and heavy metal and this recording and this is a review of their 2016 album "Kargeras - Return From Oblivion" which was released by Agonia Records.
Clean singing vocals start off the album before going into a heavier and melodic direction and the riffs and solos also use a great amount of melody and synths can also be heard at times and after awhile grim black metal screams are added onto the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Clean guitars can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a brief use of spoken word parts and most of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced direction while some tracks also bring in a small amount of whispers and the songs also incorporate elements of traditional metal and they also bring in a couple of acoustic track along with a couple of power ballads which introduces violins onto the recording before returning back to a heavier direction and there is also an instrumental.
Root creates another recording that keeps around the black metal elements while also focusing more on a melodic style of metal to update their style, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are a concept album based upon a profound nation with an occult touch.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Root and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Life Of Demon" "The Book Of Death" "The Key To The Empty Room" and "Do You Think This Is The End". 8 out of 10.
