Tetragrammaton are a band from Florida that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that combines occult black metal, doom and sludge together and this is a review of their self released 2013 demo.
"Deluge" begins with some heavy distortion which leads to some slow, heavy and dark doom metal guitar riffs along with some drums and a few seconds later black metal screams start making their way into the song and after awhile you can hear some dark sounding melodies being utilized before adding in some guitar leads and towards the end the song starts utilizing some sludge style shouts.
"Tides In Coalesce" begins with some dark and heavy doom metal guitar riffs along with some drums and a minute later you can hear some powerful bass guitars and melodic riffing which also leads to some clean singing chants before going into black metal screams and then t he music gets fast with some blast beats and primitive guitar riffing being used briefly before going into a mid paced direction which then leads to the song switching back and forth between slow and fast parts.
Song lyrics cover darkness and occult themes, while the production has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound while you can still h ear all of the musical instruments that are present on this ep.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Tetragrammaton and if you are a fan of occult black metal mixed with doom and sludge, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Tides In Coalesce". RECOMMENDED BUY.
