Corpse Garden are a band from Costa Rica that plays a very brutal and atmospheric form of death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Entheogen" which will be released in May as a joint effort between Satanah and RTM Productions.
A very dark, fast and brutal death metal sound starts off the album along with some growling vocals and blast beats and you can also hear a touch of progressive metal in the bands musical style and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile high pitched screams can be heard in certain sections of the recording.
Atmospheric and symphonic elements can be heard in some of the tracks along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound and the solos bring more of a technical and old school death metal vibe to the songs they are utilized on and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Dark and ritualistic sound effects can be heard on some of the tracks and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some melodic riffs being utilized at times and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and some of the tracks also bring in a small amount of acoustic guitars and some of the later tracks also bring in a small amount of psychedelic elements and spoken word parts.
Corpse Garden plays a style of death metal that is very original taking the brutal side and mixing in some technical and avant garde structures to create a sound of their own, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover Jungian themes and Alchemy.
In my opinion Corpse Garden are a very great sounding brutal and atmospheric death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album> RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In The Womb of Chaos" "Suspended Over The Abyss" "The First Incarnation" and "Red Pulvis Solaris". 8/5 out of 10.
