Korseld are a band from Sweden that plays an atmospheric mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Jordevandring".
A dark and symphonic sound starts off the album before going into a more heavy and melodic direction along with some death metal growls and blast beats and after awhile solos and leads become a part of the music.
As the album progresses more melodic doom metal elements are added into the recording and the band slows down a bit on the other tracks and the music is heavily rooted in the early 90's doom/death metal sound and on some of the tracks you can hear a small amount of clean singing being utilized along with powerful sounding bass lines, on some of the later tracks keyboards make a return to the album along with a small amount of violins which also bring a classical feeling to some of the tracks while the music mostly sticks to a very heavy, dark and atmospheric direction.
Korseld have a sound on this album that could easily be mistaken for an early 90's doom/death metal record and a very great quality sounding on at that, along with a very professional sounding production and lyrics that are written in Swedish and cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Korseld are a very great sounding atmospheric doom/death metal b and and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mote Med Doden" "Dagen Da Kriget Kom" "Gryningstid" and "Jordevandring". 8 out of 10.
