Construct of Lethe are a band from Virginia that plays a very old school and technical form of death metal with some thrash and black metal elements and this is a review of their self released 2016 ep "The Grand Machination" which will be released in October.
Dark sounds and spoken word samples start off the ep before going into a heavier direction where you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody while the vocals are mostly deep death metal growls and the solos and leads are also done in a melodic fashion.
At times the music can be very technical and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard and there is also a brief use of black metal screams and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the ep progresses elments of thrash can be heard.
Construct Of Lethe plays a musical style that takes an old school style of death metal and mixes it in with some modern technical elements and influences from thrash and black metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics are inspired by Mark Twain's "Letters From Earth" and his re-imaging of Lucifer's fall from heaven.
In my opinion Construct Of Lethe are a very great sounding technical and old school style death metal band with some black and thrash metal elements and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lux In Tenebris" and "The Grand Machination". 8 out of 10.
