Denmark's Undergang have returned with a new recording that continues the old school doom/death metal style of previous releases and this is a review of their 2017 album "Misanthropologi" which will be released on June 22nd by Dark Descent Records.
Horror movie samples start off the album before going into a 90's influenced sound that also introduces death metal growls onto the recording along with the riffs also utilizing a great amount of groove and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the riffs also use a great amount of dark sounding melodies.
At times the vocals can get very guttural along with a few screams and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the slower riffing is very heavily influenced by doom metal and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and one track bring in a small amount of clean playing and another song adds in horror movie style keyboards for a few seconds while the main focus remains on a heavier sound and the close an album with a tribute to Disgrace.
Undergang creates another recording that remains true to the old school doom/death metal sound of previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Danish and cover death, insanity, darkness, and suffering themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Undergang and if you are a fan of old school doom/death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Efter Obduktionen" "Sjkaret I Smastykker" "Vaeskende Sar" and "The Chasm". 8 out of 10.
