Dementia Senex are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of death metal, post hardcore, sludge and doom and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Heartworm" which was released by the Path Less Traveled.
The ep starts out with a very dark, melodic and heavy sound and after awhile growls and screams are added into the music and the recording take s on a post hardcore/sludge metal sound and after awhile solos and leads are brought into the ep along with more technical death metal elements as well as a mixture of clean and heavy parts.
As the ep continues the band stick to t heir mixture of post hardcore, sludge and doom metal which they mix in with the heaviness of technical death metal and on the last track they go into a more progressive direction along with a small amount of blast beats and melodic vocals..
With this ep Dementia Senex bring in a heavier approach to post and sludge metal with a little bit more heaviness and they demonstrate a great amount of talent and skill with the way they play their musical instruments.
Song lyrics cover dark themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Dementia Senex are a very great sounding mixture of death metal, post hardcore, sludge and doom and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Heartworm". 8 out of 10.
