Towers Of Flesh are a band from the United Kingdom that plays an occult form of black/death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Antithetical Conjurations" which will be released by Candlelight Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some melodies and after the intro brutal blast beats are added into the music along with some grim screams and the music combines the darkest elements of black and death metal together and the band sticks to mostly a slow to mid paced musical direction while they also do have their fast moments at times mostly on the alter tracks.
You can hear a great amount of talent and skill in the guitar playing and the solos and leads the band uses are in a more modern direction and after awhile modern metal elements can be heard in certain sections of the recording and on of the tracks brings in a brief use of horror movie samples which bring more of an occult and ritualistic feeling to the recording while the main focus remains on a very dark and heavy sound which also sees the band adding in more death metal growls and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and on the last track there is a brief use of acoustic guitars being utilized.
Towers Of Flesh take a very raw and melodic style of occult black metal and mixes it in with the more modern style of death metal to create their own musical style, the production has a very dark and heavy sound while the lyrics cover Occultism, Luciferian, and Gnosticism themes.
In my opinion Towers Of Flesh are a very great sounding occult black/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Veiled Conception" and "Imperfect translations". 8 out of 10.
