Dogmatic Absolution are a band from Italy that plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Poetries Of Oppression" which will be released in June by Trinidoid Records.
A very dark and atmospheric ambient sound starts off the ep and after a minute the sounds of human torture are added onto the recording the music gets a lot more heavier and goes for more of a raw black metal sound along with some blast beats and grim yet high pitched screams while still having a decent amount of melody and atmosphere.
The songs bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when solos and leads are utilized they bring in even more rawness to the bands dark approach to black metal and on the later tracks clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording which also gives the songs more of a depressive feeling along with a few tracks that are very long and epic in length and some of the songs also have a very depressive feeling at times.
Dogmatic Absolution plays a style of black metal that is very dark, raw and atmospheric and also adds in a depressive feeling at times to create an album which has a lot of the best elements of the genre being mixed together, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover occult, dark, depressive and solitude themes.
In my opinion Dogmatic Absolution are a very great sounding dark, raw and depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bringer Of Light" and "Almighty Solitude". 8 out of 10.
