Godless Angel are a solo project from Kansas that plays a progressive mixture of doom, death, thrash and groove metal on this recording and this is a review of t heir self released 2017 ep "They Lurk".
Clean guitar playing starts off the ep before going into a heavier direction which also introduces death metal growls and screams onto the recording along with some melodic guitar leads as well as the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody and the slow riffs are heavily influenced by doom metal.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the music also brings in elements of thrash and groove metal as well as some of the vocals also taking an influence from the later mention genre along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the music also gets very progressive at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the ep progresses a brief use of clean playing can also be heard and a couple of the tracks a re long and epic in length.
On this recording Godless Angel expand on their mixture of death, thrash and groove metal by adding in elements of progressive and doom metal, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics are a concept album based on some grisly murders in 1973 era of Overbrook, Kansas.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Godless Angel and if you are a fan of doom, death, groove, progressive and thrash metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Barn" and "The Sacrifice". 8 out of 10.
