Prometheus are a band from Greece that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays an occult mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Resonant Echoes From Cosmos of Old" which will be released in October by I, Voidhanger Records.
A very dark, heavy and fast sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats. Evil sounding melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing while death metal growls are also a very huge part of the recording and most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length.
Grim black metal screams are also utilized at times while the music also brings in a great amount of 90's influences. When guitars and leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark and melodic style along with the synths also enhancing the occult atmosphere of the song that are present on the recording as well as adding in some symphonic sounds.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some clean playing also being added into some parts of the music as well as the music also adding in some psychedelic and ambient touches at times and elements of doom/death metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs.
When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the album more of a raw feeling and as the album progresses an instrumental can also be heard as well as a brief use of spoken word parts towards the end. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are based upon H.P Lovecraft Chthulu Mythos.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Prometheus and if you are a fan of occult black and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Azathoth" and "The Crimson Tower Of the Headless God". 8/5 out of 10.
