Barren Earth – The Devils Resolve

barren earth.jpg

Basically, anyone that has heard Curse of the Red River is going to pretty much know what to expect. The band’s foundation is still firmly built on doomy, melodic death metal with progressive influences, but they’ve finally mastered the formula. The 70s prog blends seamlessly with mid-paced doom riffs; while death growls sit comfortably next to (much improved) harmonized clean singing. In fact, in an album where every aspect of the debut has been enhanced, the vocals had the most room for improvement and they have not disappointed.
