MorphiuM are a band from Spain that plays a gothic mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Blackout" which was released by Mass Productions.
Dark soundscapes start off the album along with some heavy riffing a few seconds later which also leads up to some death metal growls making their presence known on the recording while goth style clean singing is also used quite a bit throughout the r ecoridng and the riffs also use a great amount of melody.
All of the musical instruments on the recording h ave a very powerful sound to them and female vocals are also added into some parts of t he songs while the keyboards bring in more elements of goth and the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style and some of the riffing brings in a modern prog metal sound and black metal screams are also utilized briefly and there is also a brief use of acoustic guitars as the album progresses while a later track introduces nu metal style vocals onto the recording and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard.
MorphiuM plays a music style that is mostly rooted in goth and death metal while also mixing in elements from black, doom, prog and nu metal to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover madness, rage, love and society themes.
In my opinion MorphiuM are a very great sounding mixture of goth and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "What Lies Beyond Words" "Point Of No Return" "All You Are" and "Blindfolded". 8 out of 10.
