Ominous Eclipse are a band from Ottawa, Canada that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a melodic mixture of death and thrash metal with some elements of black and groove metal and this is a review of their self released 2018 album "Sinister" which will be released on September 14th.
Symphonic sounds start off t he album before going into a heavier direction while the screams add in a touch of black metal while the vocals also bring in a great amount of death metal growls as well as the faster sections of the songs also bringing in a lot of blast beats and the solos and leads are done in a very melodic and technical style.
A great amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music also mixing in elements of thrash and groove metal as well as one track also introducing acoustic guitars onto the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Ominous Eclipse creates another recording that remains true to the melodic mixture of death and thrash metal from their previous release while still having influences of black and groove metal, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover war, death and Armageddon themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Ominous Eclipse and if you are a fan of melodic death and thrash metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Death By Dissection" "No Redemption FOr The Damned" and "Eye Of The Raven". 8 out of 10.
