Beneath are a band from Iceland that started out more as a brutal and technical death metal band and on this recording mix that style with black metal and a touch of prog and this is a review of their 2017 album "Ephermeris" which will be released in August by Unique Leader Records.
Bass leads along with some death metal growls and brutal yet technical riffing starts off t he album and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while t he music also gets very progressive at times and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody at times.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very technical fashion while the mid tempo sections also add in touches of slam and the music also mixes in a great amount of black metal elements along with the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
On this recording Beneath gives a blackened touch to their brutal and prog style of technical and brutal death metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover science fiction and futuristic themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Beneath and if you are a fan of black and brutal technical death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Eyecatcher" "Guillotine" "Medium Obscurum" and "Multiangular". 8 out of 10.
