Heavy guitars starts off the album and a few seconds later programmed blast beats, fast riffs and death metal growls are added into the music which also has an industrial feeling at times and you can hear hear melodies being added onto the recording in some parts of the songs and the tracks also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
When solos and leads are utilized they are very melodic in the old school death metal tradition and the slower sections of the music bring elements of stoner and doom metal onto the recording while some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses the music starts getting more atmospheric and experimental while a later track also brings in a brief use of clean singing while another song also uses a small amount of clear guitars.
Vhod plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in old school death metal but also brings in elements of experimental, stoner and doom metal to create a style of his own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Vhod are a very great sounding experimental mixture of death, stoner and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Spectre's Behest" "Dragon Sand" "Flesh For Our Swords" and "Dreamcleavwer". 8 out of 10.
