Sweden's Heavy Death have returned with a new demo that remains true to their doom and death metal mixture while also adding in new things and this is a review of their 2015 which was released by Caligari Records and called "X-Solus in Mortem/VIII - Futility & Death".
A very dark and distorted sound starts off the cassette before going into a doom metal direction along with some morbid sounding melodies and after a minute the music gets even more heavier and incorporates death metal growls and grim screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the songs also bring in a good mixture of both slow and mid paced parts and at times melodic clean singing chants can be heard in certain sections of the recording and the also give the music more on an old school and traditional doom metal feeling while being ritualistic at the same time.
Heavy Death remains true to t heir mixture of doom and death metal slowing everything down this time and mixing in more melodic singing, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover darkness, solitude and death themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding from Heavy Death and if you are a fan of doom and death metal, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Silent One" and "The Bad One". 8 out of 10.
