'Forever The End'
(Seventh Rule Recordings)
This is a new band from the U.S. underground scene. Atriarch play a unique style of doom,black metal mixed with some experimental influences all rolled into one massive sound. Vocals are harsh,tormented screams of agony while the band plays the soundtrack with some haunting heavy doom riffs,mixed with some drone overtones. The vocals ,as mentioned, are mainly blackened metal screams but there are also some very well used clean vocals which add nicely to the bands overall dark and haunting sound. Atriarch are definitely not for everyone in the scene, but if you enjoy dark,doom with touches of black metal then they might be a band you will want to check out soon.
