Burial Invocation/Rituals Of The Grotesque/Dark Descent Records/2010 CD Review

  Burial Invocation are a band from Turkey that plays death metal with a doom edge in the classic vein and this is a review of their 2010 cassette "Rituals Of The Grotesque" which was released by Dark Descent Records.

  Drums mix slow and midpaced drumming with alot of fast playing and brutal blast beats while the bass playing is all rhythm bass with alot of doom/death riffs that follow the guitars.

  Rhythm guitars mix alot of fast and brutal riffs with some of the slowest and heavy doom metal, while the lead guitars are distorted sounding solos that mix all of the darkest elements from the death metal era of the early 90's.

  Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some ocassional high pitched screams, while the lyrics cover gory themes with a touch of necromancy, as for the production it has a very raw and dark feel that makes all of the musical instruments sound very brutal.

  In my opinion Burial Invocation are a very good doom/death metal band that should appeal to all fans of that music genre, and if you look your death metal dark and brutal you need to hear this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Beyond" and "Desecrated Remains". RECOMMENDED BUY.
