Finland's Black Royal have returned with a new recording that continues the death, groove, stoner and blues metal of previous releases and this is a review of their 2017 7 inch "Dying Star" which was released by Suicide Records.
Melodic guitar riffing starts off the ep before adding in more heavy riffs and death metal growls and you can also hear elements of groove and stoner metal in the bands musical style and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and clean guitars can also be heard briefly.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while symphonic elements can be heard in the background briefly along with the slow riffs also adding in a touch of doom metal and one of the tracks is long and epic in length and there is also a brief use of high pitched screams and elements of blues are also used at times and acoustic guitars along with melodic choirs are added on the second track.
Black Royal creates another recording that remains true to the death, groove and stoner metal mixture of previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Black Royal and if you are a fan of death, groove and stoner metal, you should check out this single. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Dying Star". 8 out of 10.
