Soulemission are a band from the Netherlands that plays an occult form of black metal with some death and thrash metal elements and this is a review of their 2016 album "Tales Of Inevitable Death" which will be released on Halloween by Black Lion Productions.
A very dark and heavy sound along with melodic guitar leads start off the album and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and acoustic guitars can also be heard in some of the songs and the riffs also use a great amount of blast beats while t he vocals are high pitched black metal screams.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats along with tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the music more of a raw black metal feeling and death metal growls as well as synths can also be heard at times and the songs bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
As the album progresses elements of thrash and traditional metal can be heard in some of the riffing and leads and when Kvarforth from Shining makes an appearance the music starts mixing in a more depressive edge and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and some songs also bring in a small amount of whispers as well as a few seconds of melodic screams while another song brings in melodic yet ritualistic chanting and they also bring in an instrumental before closing the album with a vocal track which also introduces spoken word parts and melodic vocals onto the recording.
Soulemission plays a style of black metal that is very heavy, raw and melodic while also mixing in elements of black, death, thrash and traditional metal to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Misanthropy and Death themes.
In my opinion Soulemission are a very great sounding occult black metal band with elements of death, thrash and traditional metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bellum Omnium Contra Omnes" "Luciferian Blood Order" and "Glorification Of Elimination". 8/5 out of 10.
