Carnal Tomb are a band from Germany that plays an old school mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Rotten Remains" which was released as a joint effort between Memento Mori and Weed Hunter Records.
Horror movie samples start off the album before going into a very dark and heavy old school death metal direction which introduces blast beats, chaotic guitar leads and growling vocals into t he music as well as some morbid sounding melodies and the music is also very heavily rooted in the early 90's.
A lot of doom metal elements can be heard in the slower riffing and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some of the faster riffs use a decent amount of tremolo picking and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses the solos and leads start getting more dark and melodic and one of the later songs brings in a brief use of keyboards which also gives the song more of a horror movie atmosphere and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Carnal Tomb plays a style of death metal that is very heavily rooted in the early 90's while also bringing in a touch of doom metal, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover death, zombies, mutilation, and tombs themes.
In my opinion Carnal Tomb are a very great sounding old school mixture of doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Undead Dread" "Cycle Of Horror" "Cemetery inversion" and "Repulsive Mutilation". 8 out of 10.
