Geryon are a duo from New York that plays a very avant garde, technical and progressive form of death metal as well as consisting of 2 members of Krallice and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Wound And The Bow" which will be released in April by Profound Lore.
A very powerful bass guitar sound which is also utilized as a lead instrument along with drums start off the album bringing in a progressive flavor to the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard along with some death metal growls and the songs also get very technical.
Avant garde elements can be heard in the music in a way they have not been done in the death metal genre along with a small amount of synths which also gives the music more of an experimental feeling and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some tracks are long and epic in length and there is also a brief use of psychedelic elements.
Geryon plays a style of progressive and technical death metal that is a lot different than most bands of this genre mixing in avant garde, psychedelic and experimental elements while also using the bass guitar as a lead instruments to create something original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Geryon are a very decent sounding avant garde, progressive, technical death metal band and if you are looking for something original, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Silent Command" "Skein" and "The Wound And The Bow". 7/5 out of 10.
