Deathkings are a band from Los Angeles, California that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of experimental, doom metal and hardcore and this is a review of their 2016 album "All That Is Beautiful" which will be released on March 18th by Midnite Collective.
Drum beats and clean guitars start off the album and after a minute the music gets a lot more heavier along with some death metal growls that are very easy to understand and the guitars also mix in a great amount of depressive melodies and melodic vocals are also added into some parts of the songs.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic and you can also hear a touch of post hardcore in the bands musical style and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also get very experimental and progressive at times and the songs also alternate quite a bit between both the clean and heavier sections of the tracks and when solos and leads are utilized they give the music even more of a melodic post metal feeling and the whole album sticks to a very slow musical direction while speeding up briefly on the last track and also adding in a small amount of blast beats.
Deathkings creates another atmospheric doom metal album that also brings in the heaviness of death metal while also mixing in a touch of hardcore and a great amount of progressive and post rock elements, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death worship, the human condition and Occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Deathkings and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sol Invictus" and "Dakhma". 8 out of 10.
