Father Befouled are a band from Georgia that plays an old school mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Desolate Gods" which will be released in June by Dark Descent Records.
Distorted guitar amp sounds start off the album and after the intro the music goes into more of a darker and heavier musical direction while the faster sections of the songs bring in a great amount of blast beats along with the vocals being deep death metal growls a nd the riffs also utilize a great amount of morbid sounding melodies.
Elements of doom metal can be heard in the slower sections of the songs and the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's along with the solos and leads also remaining very true to an old school style of death metal and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music also always remains very dark and heavy and one track is all instrumental while the last song brings in a brief use of spoken word parts.
Father Befouled plays a style of doom/death metal that is very rooted in the early 90's era of the genre, the production sounds very old school and heavy while the lyrics cover the ancient gods of death and chaos along with the darkness that governs the universe and the pain that death creates.
In my opinion Father Befouled are a very great sounding doom/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Exsurge Domine" "Ungodly Rest" and "Desolate Gods". 8 out of 10.
