7 Horns 7 Eyes - Throes Of Absolution

Throes Of Absolution the album by 7 Horns 7 Eyes has just been released on the Basick Records Bandcamp. This is atmospheric, modern death metal. Progressive and technical yes, but also melodic and brutal. The deep menacing growls are the perfect counterpoint to the spiraling melodies, similarly the guitar wizardry is fenced in by the pummeling drumming.

Two of the songs from their Convalescence EP are included here, one of them, Vindicator, is perhaps the best example of how seamless 7 Horns 7 Eyes alleviates brute force with proggresive mastery. Special mention goes to the production, it is modern, but not overly technical sounding. Despite the epicness of it all this is still the sound of a band playing. Here's a reviewfrom No Clean Singing.
