Misanthropia are a band from the Netherlands that plays a symphonic and melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their album "Omerta" which will be released in 2017 by Via Nocturna.
Keyboards and saxophones start off the album and after the intro the music goes into a fast direction that also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals are grim yet high pitched black metal screams and the riffs also use a great amount of melody and they also mix the symphonic and heavy parts together.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic fashion and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts and a couple of the songs are long and epic in length and one track also uses clean guitars and there is also a decent amount of death metal influences present throughout the recording and on one of the tracks the keyboards add in a touch of prog rock.
Misanthropia plays a style of black metal that is very melodic, epic and symphonic with some death metal touches, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover misanthropic themes.
In my opinion Misanthropia are a very great sounding symphonic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Omerta" "Torture" "The Infinite Water" and "A Membership Of Violence And Bloodlust". 8 out of 10.
