Senescence are a band from Germany that plays a traditional form of doom metal and this is a review of their self realesed 2015 ep "Endoomed".
Melodic chanting and singing starts off the ep along with some guitar amp noises as well as some programmed drum beats which also leads up to some guitar leads that use melody being added onto the recording and also introduces slow yet heavy riffs that also takes the recording into more of a traditional doom metal feeling.
All 3 of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the music is mostly rooted in the 80's style of doom metal while the production gives the songs more of a modern feeling and there is also a brief use of clean playing and one of the tracks is a power ballad and the whole ep alos sticks to a very slow musical direction and spoken word parts are added onto the last song.
Senscence plays a style of doom metal that is very heavy, melodic and traditional sounding in the more old school tradition of the genre, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Senscence are a very great sounding traditional doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Mourner's Claim". 8 out of 10.
