SYRACH - A DARK BURIAL

NAPALM RECORDS

 

Metal To Infinity

This is a Norwegian band, as far as I know they released one album before (“Days Of Wrath”). The band considers themselves as a NWOBHM Rock’n roll band. A strange way to label their own music but at least it is something I need to try out. Listening to the first song I do hear this band is playing some kind of Doom Metal. Only by the used instruments the band succeeds to deliver the listeners a dark atmosphere and I really like it.  

The used grunts are very dark and sinister, they’re well supported by heavy and low guitars! It fits the songs well although I prefer clean vocals on this kind of Metal. For some reason I’m not the biggest fan of grunts on Doom Metal.  

Syrach is not that easy to label, therefore the music they play is too traditional. This isn’t a clone of My Dying Bride, it sounds more like eighties Doom with heavy loaded vocals! Nevertheless this release contains six great songs.
