Solomonic Demons are a solo project from New Jersey that has been featured before in this zine an plays a melodic mixture of black, death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Malevolent Destiny" which was released by Merdumgiriz.
A very hard, dark and melodic sound starts off the album and all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to t hem and after awhile death metal growls are added onto the album and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard along with some elements of thrash.
When solos and leads are utilized they bring in a more old school extreme metal style and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and black metal screams can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and the music is mostly rooted in the mid 80's and early days but with more up to date technology and as the album progresses a brief use of clean playing can be heard while the main focus remains more on a heavier style and classical guitars along with spoken word parts are introduced on the last track.
Solomonic Demons creates another recording that takes the melodic and old school style of black, death and thrash metal and mixes them together to create a very heavy recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, violent, war and occult themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Solomonic Demons and if you are a fan of black, death and thrash metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dawn Of Souls" "Rotten World" and "War Never Changes". 8 out of 10.
