The Convalescene are a band from Toledo, Ohio that plays a symphonic form of deathcore with some elements of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "This Is Hell" which will be released in September by Unique Leader Records.
A very heavy and brutal sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls and deathcore style break downs while high pitched grindcore screams which also have a touch of black metal to them are also used at times along with symphonic elements also being mixed in with the brutality.
Angry spoken word parts are also utilized at times while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard along with the riffs also bringing in a decent amount of melody at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
As the album progresses female vocals can also be heard on some of the songs and a later track also introduces clean playing onto the recording and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very technical fashion and a great amount of slam elements can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording.
The Convalescene plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in deathcore while adding in black, death metal and symphonic elements to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion The Convalscene are a very great sounding symphonic deathcore band with touches of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Scum" "Murder Machine" "This Is Hell" and "The World Infested". 8 out of 10.
