This is a review of another recording from California's Draghkar which expand on their cavernous style of death metal by adding in elements of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 ep "The Endless Howling Abyss" which will be released on July 27th as a joint effort between Craneo Negro and Nameless Grave Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep while the riffs also bring in a great amount of morbid sounding melodies along with the faster sections of the songs utilizing blast beats as well as the vocals being mostly death metal growls and you can also hear elements of black metal at times.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music also having a lot of 90's influences but sounding modern at the same time and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of tremolo picking as well as the music always remains very heavy a nd clean vocals can also be heard briefly on the closing track.
On this recording Draghkr expand on their cavernous style of death metal by adding in a touch of black metal, the production sounds very dark and old school while the lyrics cover conceptual, horror, madness and world end themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Draghkr and if you are a fan of cavernous death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Swallowed By The Dark" and "Fading Into Emptiness". 8 out of 10.
