Exgenesis are a duo with members from both Columbia and Sweden and also plays a melodic mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Aphotiv Veil" which was released by Rain Without End Records.
A very dark, melodic and heavy doom metal sound starts off the ep and a few seconds later death metal growls and guitar leads that also utilize a great amount of melody are added into the music along with a small amount of black metal screams and at times clean playing and whispers can be heard in certain sections of the recording.
At times the music brings in more of a modern prog metal sound and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful on the songs while some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and also stick to mostly a slow or mid paced musical direction as well as always having a very dark and heavy atmospheric feeling and one of the songs also brings in a brief use of clean singing along with a small amount of blast beats.
Exgenesis plays a style of doom/death metal that is very dark, melodic, heavy, atmospheric and progressive sounding, the production sounds very dark yet professional at the same time while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Exgenesis are a very great sounding melodic mixture of doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cloudburst" and "Futile Horizon". 8 out of 10.
