Behind The Sun are a band from South Carolina that plays a progressive and melodic mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Post Solis" which will be released in March.
A very fast and melodic sound starts off the album along with some high pitched screams that are heavily influenced by death metal as well as some growls and after awhile the riffing starts adding in elements of prog and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic style and there is also a brief use of shamanistic tribal beats and melodic singing can also be heard at times while most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and there is also a brief use of keyboards along with a brief instrumental and the slow riffs are very heavily influenced by doom metal and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and a couple of tracks also introduces clean and acoustic guitars onto the recording and there is also a brief use of blast beats.
Behind The Sun plays a musical style that takes melodic death, doom and progressive metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Behind The Sun are a very great sounding mixture of melodic death, doom and progressive metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Fall" and "Laniakea". 8 out of 10.
