Atrocity are a band from German that originally started out as a technical death metal band but over the years have also experimented with a variety of many different musical styles and this is a review of their 2017 album "Masters Of Darkness" which was released by Massacre Records.
Atmospheric soundscapes along with some demonic spoken word parts start off the ep before going into a heavier direction which also mixes in symphonic elements at times while the vocals are mostly death metal growls and screams and element s of thrash can also be heard in the riffing.
Operatic choirs can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they give the songs more of an old school metal feeling along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as all of t he musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
On this recording Atrocity takes an old school style of death metal and mixes it with operatic choirs and symphonic elements to create something very different, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Atrocity and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Masters of Darkness" and ""Devil's Covenant". 8 out of 10.
