Temple Of Dagon are a band from California that plays a mixture of doom, death, thrash metal, crust and stenchcore and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Revelations Of The Spirit" which will be released in June by Black Voodoo.
Avant garde ritualistic music sounds start off the ep and a few seconds later the music starts gettign heavier and adds in more of an old school death/thrash style which is also very heavily influenced by crust and stenchcore and the vocals also bring in t hat same element along with a few growls and high pitched screams.
Guitar leads when they are utilized are very melodic sounding and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's and the band also brings in a few tracks that are long an d epic in length and you can also hear a decent amount of melody in some of the guitar riffs and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the slower sections of n the music bring in a heavy dose of doom metal.
Temple Of Dagon plays a musical style that goes back to the early 90's day of doom, death, thrash metal, crust and stenchcore but done with a more modern take on those genres, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are based on the writings of H.P Lovecraft.
In my opinion Temple Of Dagon are a very great sounding mixture of doom, death, thrash metal, crust and stenchcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Evocation" and "Nexus Of Reality". 8 out of 10.
