Apotelesma are a band from the Netherlands that plays a mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Timewrought Kings" which will be released on October 27th by Solitude Productions.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album and after a couple of minutes the music goes into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful while the vocals are mostly death metal growls as well as some black metal screams.
When the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion and clean singing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with most of the tracks being very long and epic in length, spoken word parts can also be heard briefly and they also bring in an instrumental track which also introduces keyboards onto the recording before returning back to a heavier direction.
Apotelesma plays a style of doom/death metal that is very melodic and atmospheric while also mixing in a touch of black metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Apotelesma are a very great sounding atmospheric 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 "The Weakest Of Man' and "Remnants". 8 out of 10.
