"MONUMENT" is the second full length release from Norway's AMONG GODS.
These guys take things back to the old school and play Swedish / Norwegian styled Death
metal music. They have added their own twists on this style by adding in some heavy
Doom influences as well as some straight up Hard Rock and Traditional Metal influences
into their sound. I really liked the slow build and burn they have in a lot of their songs. It
felt like a long journey and battle to get to the end reward, which you really look forward
too. The thick Doom and almost dirty Sludge Metal sound is what really draws me in,
drags you under and keeps you wanting more. I also dig the fact that within all this dreary
low ended fuzz sound they have they manage to throw in some grooves as well. The
vocals are done in a drawn out Death growl style, but you can understand the lyrics. If
you love your Death Metal with a bit of dark, dirty and dreary flavoring then you must
get AMONG GODS. They have it all and much more and they deliver on every level.
This is a must for fans of ENTOMBED, DEBAUCHERY, SIX FEET UNDER,
CHROME DIVISION & GOREFEST!!!
