Released in the same year as their promo, these guys have shown tremendous improvement. The production issue is fixed and actually seems a bit overproduced. It has a very hollow atmosphere and it almost sounds as if the music is being played around you instead of next to you. Tough to explain, but cool effect that gives this demo that "towering" feel I spoke of earlier. The doom and gloom is still there, with a few adjustments to the vocal style. For the most part, we hear a droning sort of guttural that looms in the horizon, casting its evil upon you from afar. Also, there is the occasional clean vocal that's done in the same style as the guttural, but seems a little more haunting. Great effect. Mostly hanging out in doom territory, Symphony of Grief also erupt into faster-paced Death Metal sections with double bass and everything. Awesome.
