Algos are a solo project from the Netherlands that plays a melodic mixture of death and doom metal and this is a review of his self released 2015 album "The Death of Seasons".
A very atmospheric sounding synth starts off the album giving the music an ambient feeling and after the intro the music goes into more of a heavy death metal influenced direction while also adding in growls and mixing the heavy parts in the songs and also adding melodic guitar leads into the songs.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats a re added onto the recording and some of the high pitched screams also have a black metal feeling to them and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the songs also bring in the more melodic side of death metal and when acoustic guitars are utilized they give the songs more of a progressive feeling and some tracks also bring in a small amount of violins.
Algos plays a musical style that is very heavily rooted in the 90's atmospheric doom/death metal sound but updates the style for modern times with elements of melodic death metal, progressive and a touch of black metal to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover depression and mythological themes.
In my opinion Algos are a very great sounding melodic doom/death metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Realm Of madness" "Eternal Winter" "Hymn To Anubis" and "Fragments". 8 out of 10.
