Deteriorot are a band from North Carolina that plays a mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2001 album "In Ancient Beliefs" which was re-issued in 2016 by Xtreem Music.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the album along with some blast beats and deep death metal growls a few seconds later and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's and the slower sections of the songs are very heavily influenced by doom metal and the riffs also use a great amount of morbid sounding melodies.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they remain true to a very old school style of death metal and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while grim screams can also be heard briefly and a couple of tracks also brings in a brief use of synths while clean guitars are used on one of the songs.
Deteriorot played a style of doom/death metal that was very old school for even 2001 while also being very heavy and dark, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Spirits, Death, Ceremonies, and Anti Christianity themes.
In my opinion Deteriorot are a very great sounding 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 "In Ancient Beliefs" "Fallen Misery" "Eternal Darkness" and Vile". 8 out of 10.
