Super Massive Black Holes are a band from Canada that plays a very experimental and progressive form of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Calculations Of the Ancients" which was released by Minotauro Records.
A very heavy and progressive sound starts off the recording along with some death metal growls and the music gets more melodic and technical along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them along with solos and leads becoming a part of the recording and after awhile blast beats are added into the album.
When we get into the other tracks you can hear clean playing in certain sections of the recording along with elements of jazz music while also keeping around a heavy sound and when they bring in acoustic guitars it enhances the progressive nature of the recording as well as adding in symphonic and psychedelic sounds and on some of the tracks they bring in movie samples along with a few instrumentals and on the last track they bring in a small amount of slide guitars.
Super Massive Black Holes have a very original sound with their music where they mix technical death metal on the heavier side with progressive and jazz fusion as well as a small amount of blues on the softer side to create their sound along with a very professional sounding production and lyrics that cover science theories and human experiences.
In my opinion Super Massive black Holes are a very great and original sounding progressive, experimental death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dyatlov Pass Incident" "Holographic Principle" and "Ghosts of Bhopal". 8 out of 10.
