Tyrannosorceress - Demo 2011

Besides having an awesome name Tyrannosorceress is one of those bands that are difficult to pigeonhole. The base is sludgy black metal, but you can hear death metal, and doom too. It doesn't matter much though, because it all hangs together. The songwriting is solid, and the performance is pretty intense. Tyrannosorceress does both chaotic blasting sections and epic soloing with aplomb. The double tracked vocals and weird lyrics creates an almost evil psychedelic atmosphere.

The production could have been a little fuller, but this is a demo after all; the slight tinniness doesn't detract from the overall quality of the music. Despite being way blacker, Tyrannosorceress reminds me of Agrimonia in the way they transform different genres into coherent songs. The band is currently hard at work writing their debut full-length. I hope it gets a Bandcamp release, for I would very much like to hear what Tyrannosorceress bring to the table in the future.

  1. Check out Steel Bearing Hand and Cleric. Both have some of the same members and are equally as great!
