Tethra are a band from Italy that plays a melancholic mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "Like Crows For the Earth" which will be released on February 11th by Sliptrick Records.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album along with some violins a few seconds later and after the intro the music goes into a heavier direction while also introducing death metal growls and melodic guitar leads onto t he recording as well as some grim s creams that add in a touch of black metal.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and melodic vocals are also added into some parts of the songs and they also bring in a couple of instrumentals along with acoustic guitars also being used on other tracks and progressive elements can also be heard at times and one track adds in ethnic folk instruments briefly and a couple of the songs are very long and epic in length and the whole album also sticks to a slow or mid paced musical direction.
Tethra plays a style of doom/death metal that is very melancholic and atmospheric sounding while also adding in a touch in a touch of black metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and mythological themes.
In my opinion Tethra are a very great sounding melancholic 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 "Transcending Thanatos" "Deserted' "Synchronicity Of Life And Decay" and "Like Crows For The Earth". 8 out of 10.
