Church Of Disgust are a band from Texas that has been featured before in this zine and plays an old school form of death metal with elements of doom and this is a review of their 2016 album "Veneration Of Filth" which was released by Memento Mori.
Horror movie style keyboards start off the album before going into a heavier direction which also introduces chaotic sounding guitar leads onto the recording while also having their melodic moments and the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's and the riffs also use a decent amount of morbid sounding melodies.
Vocals have the early death metal style when the genre was still evolving out of thrash while growls along with screams can also be heard at times and the slower sections of the songs are very heavily influenced by doom metal and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Blast beats can also be heard during the faster sections of the songs and the tracks also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with a brief use of spoken word parts and the songs sound like they could of been recorded and released 25 years ago and as the album progresses horror movie samples are added onto the recording and there is also some session work from members of Nocturnus A.D, Sewercide and Disevered.
Church Of Disgust creates another recording that remains true to the doom influenced old school death metal style of previous releases, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover horror, H.P Lovecraft, and The Occult.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Church Of Disgust and if you are a fan of old school doom/death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ripping Decay" "Plague Of Punishment" "Supine In The Face Of Total Death" and "Sunken Altar Of Dagon". 8 out of 10.
