Into Pandemonium are a band from Dayton, Ohio that plays a very melodic, atmospheric and technical mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their self released ep "Darkest Rise" which will be released in 2020.
Melodic yet heavy riffing starts off the ep along with all of the musical instruments on the recording having a very powerful sound to them. The solos and leads also utilize a great amount of melody and during the faster sections of the songs blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the vocals also add in a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls. At times the music also gets very technical sounding and as the ep progresses the music starts having it's atmospheric moments as well as a brief use of clean vocals, synths and clean playing are also added on the closing track.
Into Pandemonium plays a musical style that takes the atmospheric and melodic side of black metal and mixes it with technical death metal to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while t he lyrics cover transcendental themes.
In my opinion Into Pandemonium are a very great sounding atmospheric, melodic and technical mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Becoming" and "Fallen". 8 out of 10.
