Deep Desolation - Rites Of Blasphemy
The album cracks on a good pace and is different enough to keep you interested throughout, no filler on here although the instrumental “Intermezzo” is probably the weakest track on the whole release but it is less than two minutes long so we can forgive them that! My personal favourites are “Blasphemous Rites” which has an epic doom laden riff which give it a really evil feel to it, and the epic “Mroczny Hymn” which is over eleven minutes long and an absolute top track with some great playing and just makes you want more!! It has some groove style riffs in it that lets you see this band are not just a black metal band, they certainly bring more to the table than that.
Well this was my first meeting with Deep Desolation but I can certainly tell you it wont be my last, this is an epic release and has some really great touches to it, it really is a bit different to the normal black metal stuff that I listen to, I probably don’t listen to enough doom but this band with their doomy touches may make me check out some more doom bands. Can’t recommend them highly enough, buy it now!!![embed]https://www.youtube.com/embed/GfZAGZb-H3s[/embed]
