Echo are a band from Denver, Colorado that plays black metal with a melodic edge and this is a review of their self released 2012 demo.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with some fast playing and blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast Nordic sounding black metal riffs that utilize a great amount of melody as well as some thrash influences and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording except for the last song.
Vocals are all high pitched black metal screams that capture alot of emotion along with a brief use of deep death metal growls, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion this is a great demo from Echo which shows alot of potential but I prefer there live performances where they are more energetic, but if you are a fan of Nordic style of black metal from the U.S with a melodic edge, you should check this band out and this demo is available for free download on the band page of their facebook page. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Serpent". RECOMMENDED.
