Maze Of Sothoth are a band from Italy that plays a Lovecraft themed style of death metaol and this is a review of their album "Soul Demise" which will be released in 2017 by Everlasting Spew Records.
A very dark and avant garde ritualistic synth starts off the album and after the intro the music gets more heavy and brutal along with a decent amount of morbid sounding melodies and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the musicians on this recording are very talented and the solos and leads are very melodic while still being in a darker style and the music also brings in a great amount of 90's influences while also being very modern at the same time and as the album progresses synths also make a return in certain sections of the recording while the main focus is on a brutal style.
Maze Of Sothoth plays a style of death metal that is very traditional and brutal while also mixing in a sci-fi atmosphere at times, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are based on the writings of H.P Lovecraft.
In my opinion Maze Of Sothoth are a very great sounding Lovecraft themes death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lies" "The Outsider" "At The Mountains Of Madness" and "Divine Sacrifice". 8 out of 10.
