Dormanth are a band from Spain that plays a very melodic mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "IX Sins" which was released by Necromance Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some melodic guitar leads while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them as well as the vocals being mostly deep death metal growls and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
At times the music gets very atmospheric while spoken word parts can also be heard briefly while the riffs also utilize a lot of melody along with the slower riffing being very heavily influenced by doom metal and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard as well as the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the faster riffing also brings in a small amount of tremolo picking.
Dormanth plays a musical style that takes doom and melodic death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover melancholy, death, faith and sadness themes.
In my opinion Dormanth are a very great sounding melodic 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 "Human Claim" "Like Ice" "Misery" and "Sands Of Frozen Tears". 8 out of 10.
