Dood are a band from the Netherlands that plays a raw and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Liberating Self Destruction".
A very raw and old school black metal sound starts off the album along with blast beats and a few seconds later a small amount of melodic chanting before adding in high pitched screams and the songs also bring atmospheric elements with the synths as well as a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
When solos and leads are utilized they are in a very dark and melodic musical direction and a couple of the tracks also bring in a brief use of classical guitars and as the album progresses the music starts getting more depressive and the riffs also start getting more balanced between the melodic and raw aspects of the recording.
Dood plays a style of black metal that takes the raw, atmospheric and depressive sides of the genre and mixes them together to bring in their vision of the genre, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Luciferian, Occult and dark themes.
In my opinion Dood are a very great sounding raw, depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Liberating-Self Destruction" "Luciferain Manifest" and "Silence". 8 out of 10.
