Sorrows Path are a band from Greece that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of power and doom metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Doom Philosophy" which was released by Iron Shield Records.
Dark sounding synths start off the album along with some clean playing and chants and after some spoken word parts the album goes pass the intro into the first real song which starts out with a very heavy and melodic old school doom metal sound along as well as bringing in some clean singing vocals.
The solos and leads the band uses are very dark and melodic sounding as well as displaying a great amount of talent and skill and all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and at times synths are mixed in with the heavier riffs which also bring in a thrash metal influence at times.
There is a very dark and haunting atmosphere being evoked on some of the tracks on the album as well as a brief use of acoustic guitars being used at times and after awhile aggressive vocals make their presence known briefly and they add in a bit of a death metal edge while the main focus remains more on melodic vocals and halfway through the album a power ballad is added onto the recording being making a return back to a darker and doomier direction on the following tracks and they close the album with an instrumental.
Sorrows Path creates another epic sounding power/doom metal album with this recording while also having more of a dark sound this time around along with a small amount of symphonic elements, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, metaphysical and sorrow themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sorrows Path and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tragedy" "The King With A Crown Of Thorns" "The Venus And The Moon" and "Darkness". 8 out of 10.
