Grand Demise Of Civilization are a band from Minnesota that plays a very aggressive and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2019 album "Below The Feet Of Kings"
A very fast, dissonant and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with some deep guttural growls also being used at times and most of te tracks are very long and epic in length.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very technical and melodic style as well as some clean playing being added into some parts of the music and as the album progresses some atmospheric and depressive elements can also be heard as well as some parts of the recording also having their progressive moments, one track also introduces spoken word parts onto the recording..
Grand Demise Of Civilization plays a style of black metal that is very aggressive, melodic and technical sounding. The production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover death, destruction of humanity and anti Christian themes.
In my opinion Grand Demise Of Civilization are a very great sounding aggressive, melodic and technical black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out t his recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Path" and "Decipher the Lie". 8 out of 10.
