Algaroth is another powerful progressive death metal band I have discovered online about a month ago with their debut EP album; Awaken, which was released this year in January. The band is undoubtedly showing great potential with their musical ideas, decisions, progressive compositions, riffs, the atmosphere in their music and most importantly with their professionalism as an upcoming band. As I mention in my articles time to time that we usually don’t expect to see these high standards from upcoming bands. In this matter, these Australian gentlemen have rightfully earned their place in our blog.
The album; Awaken has a captivating dark and moody atmosphere in general. When you take a closer look at each song in the album, you’ll also see that nothing is too standard about it. They have successfully combined their inspirations, mostly doom, progressive and death metal, and offered the world this powerful statement about themselves. What I liked the most about this album were their fresh energy. Nothing is boring, nothing is too repetitive. They obviously didn’t follow anybody’s path in writing and building up their own music, which is admirable. There are so many unexpected things in each track that keeps your attention alive, where I believe they make the actual difference.
