Apocrophex are a band from New jersey that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very technical form of death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Suspended From the Cosmic Altaar" which will be released in March by Manisidic Records.
A very dark and technical death metal sound starts off the album along with blast beats being added into certain sections of the recording and the vocals also bring in a good balance between growls, shouts and screams along with a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Melodic riffing can be heard throughout the recording along with the solos bringing in more of a technical and melodic sound to the bands musical style and at times the music brings in a great amount of brutality and the songs also bring in a decent mixture of old school and modern death metal influence s which they combine together on this album.
Apocrophex creates another death metal album that is very brutal and technical sounding while also displaying a great amount of talent and skill as musicians, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover unknown, cryptic, occult and hidden topics.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Apocrophex and if you are a fan of technical death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Evidence of A Desolate Planet" "Suspended From The Cosmic Altaar" "The Nine Patterns Of Annu" and "Exposed organics". 8 out of 10.
