Black Metal is On The Rise -The Convalescence

From The blazing pits of hell in Toledo, OH a black metal force is rising and they are pure with the sound of a diabolical presence in their heads. The fans are more and more accepting Black metal at its modern sound. Bands like Dark Funeral, Mayhem and Emperor paved the way and the standards for what black metal should sound like. However, bands are adding symphony, metal solos and melodic riffs that make listener’s skin crawl. The Convalescence is not far from that scene. This band is releasing their debut album titled- ‘Poison Words’. This album is diabolical in its sound and the atrocious guitar riffs elicit the darkest corners or your obscure mind.convalescence The song “The Mouth of Hell” has an eerie introduction, warning the listener of the morbid growls by Keith Wampler. The song contains modern breakdowns something not seeing before in black metal but this band makes that sound their own. The mixture of black metal/ and Nu Metal is divine and this band’s sound is loud and powerful. Demons from hell can be seen crawling from their pits, as this band’s drummer (Justin Dubay) attacks those drums with that mastered double pedal. The distortion and down tune added in the song “Reflections” is what makes the band stand out from the rest. We can even say this band has a bit of trash/black/Nu metal sound to them. Black Metal is epic with the addition of keyboards, and this band adds their melody with Katie McCrimmon on the board. This band has exposed the world to their talent during the opening of Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Their new album ‘Poison Words’ will be out on April 1st, via 3Thirteen Entertainment Group/eOne Music. Check out their touring dates and do not miss this black metal act.
