Backyard Mortuary are a band from Australia that plays a very old school form of occult death metal and this is a review of their 2013 12 inch "Lure Of The Occult" which was released by Blood Harvest Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast old school death metal riffs that are very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sounding with some morbid sounding melodies being thrown the riffing at times, while the lead guitars are very dark sounding old school death metal guitar solos and leads that utilize some melody at times.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some high pitched screams being utilized at times, while the lyrics cover darkness, gore and occult themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, old school, raw and primitive sound with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Backyard Mortuary are a very great sounding heavy and dark old school occult death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Beyond The Grave" "Lure Of The Occult" and "Demons Blood". RECOMMENDED BUY.
