Beneath are a band from Iceland that plays a very brutal and technical form of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "The barren Throne" which will be released by Unique Leader.
Acoustic guitars start off the album and they bring a very dark feeling to the recording and after a minute the music starts going for a more technical death metal direction along with some growls, blast beats and a good amount of melody and as time goes on by the music starts to get more fast and brutal as well as bringing in guitar solos and leads.
On the other songs there are more brutal elements along with a mixture of slow and fast parts and they also add clean parts in certain sections of the recording along with some high pitched screams in the more brutal and melodic moments of the recording and the band also brings in a mixture of short and long tracks and later on the acoustic guitars make a brief return before the album goes back to a more heavy and brutal direction.
Beneath bring in a very brutal and technical sound to the album with the brutal parts being the main focus as well as adding in more melody than most bands of this genre to create a very great quality death metal sound, along with a very professional sounding production and lyrics that cover a concept that involves an entity that consumes and devours everything around until its forced to consume itself.
In my opinion Beneath are a very great sounding technical, brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Depleted Kingdom" "Putrid Sea of Affection" "Veil Of Mercy" and "Unearthed". 8 out of 10.
