Demon Lung are a band from Nevada that has been featured before in this zine and plays an occult form of doom metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "A Dracula" which will be released in June by Candlelight Records.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album and after the intro the music goes into more of a heavy doom metal direction along with some clean singing vocals and a good portion of the songs are very long and epic in length and all of the songs use a great amount of melody and the music is very heavily rooted in the 80's.
Clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording and while the music is very rooted in the old school tradition of doom metal the music still sounds very modern and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction and when guitar leads are utilized they remain dark and melodic and on a later track acoustic guitars make their return.
Demon Lung remain trues to a traditional style of doom metal creating an album that is very slow, heavy, dark and melodic, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are based on the 1977 form form 'Alucarda.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Demon Lung and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Behold, The Daughter" "Deny The Savior" and "Raped By The Serpent". 8 out of 10.
