Rise Of Avernus are a band from Australia that plays a mixture of orchestral, gothic, doom and death metal and this is a review of t heir album "Eigengrau" which will be released in 2018 by Code666.
A very dark, epic and symphonic sound starts off the album along with some elements of classical music which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the music along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them while the vocals are mostly death metal growls.
Most of the slower riffing is very heavily influenced by doom metal while t he riffs also bring in a great amount of melody, when clean vocals are utilized they give the songs more of a goth feeling along with the guitar solos and leads being done in a very melodic and when screams are utilized they bring in a touch of black metal.
Spoken word parts also being used briefly and when the music finally speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard while acoustic guitars when they are utilized give the songs more of a progressive feeling along with some of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
Rise Of Avernus plays a musical style that takes goth, progressive and orchestral music and mixes it with doom and death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover relationships and allegory themes.
In my opinion Rise Of Avernus are a very great sounding mixture of progressive, orchestral, goth, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ad Infinitum" "Tempest" and "Into Aetherium". 8 out of 10.
