Plague Weaver are a band from Ontario, Canada that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording plays a mixture of black and doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 album "Through The Sulfur Eyes".
A very slow, dark and heavy doom metal sound starts off the album while the vocals bring in a mixture of black metal screams and growls. Melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing along with some blast beats also being utilized when the music speeds up and when solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark and melodic style.
The songs also bring in a great amount of 90's influences while still capturing a very modern atmosphere. When tremolo picking is also utilized briefly it also gives the music more of a raw feeling along with all of the tracks also sounding very different from each other, all of the music also sticks to a heavier direction as well as all of the musical instruments on the recording also having a very powerful sound to them and spoken word parts can also be heard briefly on one of the tracks.
On this recording Plague Weaver takes their music into more of a blackened doom metal direction. The production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover dark, occult and alchemy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Plague Weaver and if you are a fan of black and doom metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Traveller" and "Alchemy". 8 out of 10.
