Borow are a band from Russia that plays a very brutal form of gore/death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "The Pnakotic Manuscript" which was released as a joint effort between Satanath Records and Rebirth The Metal Productions.
A very hard and heavy sound starts off the album along with some blast beats a few seconds later and after awhile death metal growls and morbid sounding melodies also make their presence known on the recording while the guitar solos and leads are very dark and melodic sound and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Folk instruments can be heard briefly in the music and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some songs also bring in high pitched screams and atmospheric synths are also added into a few songs and during the faster sections of the songs the music starts adding in more brutality and as the album progresses elements of modern metal can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while some tracks also use a small amount of clean playing and melodic singing.
Borrow plays a style of death metal that is very brutal and modern while also mixing in a good amount of melody and ritualistic atmospheres to add something original to the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover gore, death, torture, cannibalism and the writings of H.P Lovecraft.
In my opinion Borow are a very great sounding modern, brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Madness Comes From Out The Sea Depth" "The Great Black" "Curse Of The Earth" and "The Patron Of Slaves". 8 out of 10.
