Cemetery where a band from Germany that played death metal and this is a review of their 2014 compilation "Enter The Gate" which was released by Memento Mori and contains all of their demo's and recordings from 1991 to 1993.
Dark sound effects start off the first disc and then the music goes into a more death/thrash metal direction along with some morbid sounding melodies and after a couple of minutes growling vocals are added into the music, after awhile clean playing is added into certain parts of the recording along with melodic guitar leads.
The songs the band bring onto the compilation sound very underrated for the time they where recorded and the band shows they had as much talent as the other death metal bands of the time and the bass guitars have a very powerful sound to them, as time goes on by the band start bringing in a mixture of acoustic and heavy parts which gives the music an early technical death metal feeling. as well as a small amount of synths while the main focus is on a true death metal sound and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
The band has a very raw sound in the faster sections of the music along with some blast beats, and on the second disc the music starts out with some synths, acoustic guitars and an intro but is a lot more heavy and raw with some of the early 90's brutality on the second disc than it was on the first disc.
Cemetery show they where a very underrated band fro their time with the first disc showing a more progressive and talented sound while the first disc is pure raw old school death metal, the production sounds very professional for the time it was released and also considering they never got signed to a label and the lyrics cover darkness and occult themes.
In my opinion Cemetery where a very great sounding underrated death metal b and for their time and if you want to hear some of the better death metal that never got known in the early 90's, you should check out this compilation. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pits of Hell" "At Dark Places" "Something Evil" and "Dungeon Of Dreams". 8/5 out of 10.
