Druid Lord are a band from Orlando, Florida that plays a mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their album "Grotesque Offerings" which will be released in 2018 by Hells Headbangers.
Horror movie style synths start off the album before going into more of a heavier doom metal direction which also mixes in both 80's and 90's influences as well as capturing in a modern atmosphere while the solos and leads are done in a very dark, melodic yet old school direction.
Vocals are mostly death metal growls that also have a touch of early Cathedral to them along with some screams while most of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with the riffs also bringing in a decent amount of melody and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and some songs also bring in horror movie samples as well as a brief use of clean playing and when the music speeds up briefly a small amount of blast beats can be heard.
Druid Lord plays a style of doom/death metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's while still having a more up to date take on the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover horror and occultism themes.
In my opinion Druid Lord are a very great sounding 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 "House of Dripping Gore" "Black Candle Seance" and "Last Drop Of Blood". 8 out of 10.
