Sepulchral Curse are a band from Finland that originally started out as an old school style death metal band but have evolved into a more blackened death metal style with their newer release and this is a review of their 2016 ep "At The Onset Of Extinction" which will be released in December by Transcending Obscurity Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep along with a great amount of morbid sounding melodies and blast beats can be heard in the faster sections of the songs along with the vocals being very guttural death metal growls and the music is very heavily rooted in the early 90's and the guitar leads a re also very dark and melodic.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and black metal screams can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and all of the songs stick to a very heavy musical direction and the last track is very long and epic in length and also adds in a touch of doom metal.
Sepulchral Curse creates a recording that takes their old school death metal roots and mixes it in with more black metal influences to take their music to a different level, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death, war and occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sepulchral Curse and if you are a fan of blackened death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Envisioned In Scars" and "Gospel Of Bones". 8 out of 10.
