Deprive are a 1 man band from Spain that plays an old school mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of his 2015 album "Into Oblivion" which was released by Memento Mori.
A very dark, slow and melodic doom metal sound starts off the album and a few seconds alter the music speeds up and adds in old school death metal elements along with a great amount of blast beats and growling vocals as well as mixing in solos and leads when they are needed in the songs and they also stick to a 90's tradition of extreme metal.
Throughout the recording there is a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with a small amount of grim screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording and some of the alter tracks are also very long and epic in length and also bring in more of a powerful doom metal sound during the slower sections and one of the later tracks also brings in a brief use of Gregorian chants while another song also adds in keyboards while the main focus remains more on a heavy and dark doom/death metal direction.
Deprive plays a style of doom/death metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's and all of the songs sound like they could of easily been recorded and released during that time frame, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism, Ancient Myths and Death.
In my opinion Deprive are a very great sounding old school mixture of doom and death metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fall Of Entropy" "Dethroned Messiah" "Divine Blood Of The Deceased" and "Below The Screams Of The Dying". 8 out of 10.
