Rest In Disgrace are a band from Brazil that plays a style that mixes melodic death metal with doom metal and a small amount of black metal and this is a review of their 2010 e.p "As Beauty Springs From Mud".
Drums are a mixture of slow to midpaced beats with some fast playing and blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone that follows the riffs coming out of the guitars and they have a very powerful sound on some songs, as for the pianos when they are utilized they brind a dark, tragic and ambient feel to the music.
Rhythm guitars are mostly melodic death metal riffs that also mix in some doom metal and thrash influences with some softer playing that sounds very progressive, while the lead guitars are mostly melodic guitar solos that have a classic metal feel, as for the accoustic guitars that have a very exotic scales that bring a Vedic feel to the music while maintaining a progressive edge.
Vocals are mostly melodic death metal screams with some deep growls and a black metal edge to the singing and there are spoken word passages used on ocassion as well, while the lyrics touch on Buddhism, Hindu Mythology, Eastern and Western Philosophies, as for the production on this e.p it has a very professional and you can hear all of the instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Rest In Disgrace are a very talented band with an original lyrical approach and id you are a fan of melodic death metal or doom metal you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Viel Of Maya" "Unnnamed Feelings-Decension" and "Samsara". RECOMMENDED BUY
