Curse The Flesh are a band from Mobil, Alabama that plays a very melodic form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Black Majesty".
Distorted soundscapes start off the album before going into a heavier musical direction that also uses a great mixture of death metla growls and black metal screams and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard while a lot of the riffing brings in a great amount of melody.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the songs also bring in a great mixture of both European and American black and death metal influences and some songs also bring in a small amount of atmospheric synths which also gives the music a symphonic touch without taking away from the brutality.
Curse The Flesh plays a musical style that takes European style melodic black metal and mixes it with American death metal to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover darkness, blasphemous and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Curse The Flesh are a very great sounding melodic blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blasphemy Hymn" "The Shroud" and "I Call Down Horrors". 8 out of 10.
