has become a genre that is in constant flux, with artists constantly
re-imagining and reinventing its timbre and manipulating its
characteristics. This most recent album from Promethean Misery aim sto
capture the dark melancholic atmosphere often embraced by doom metal,
but stretches the instrumentation and how it can be used in the genre.
So if you're a fan of doom metal, and open to something that sits just
outside the realms of distorted guitar, than give this a go. Promethean
Misery is an ongoing tale of misery; a collection of pieces composed
over many years by Australian solo artist Samantha Kempster. The use of
piano, voice, violin, percussion, and other orchestral and distorted
elements, are interwoven into melancholic melodies, and dark deep riffs.
Each songs features these instruments in different capacities, giving
each song its own identity, while maintaining the melancholic feel. This
is a phenomenal new album. This is a Masterpiece.
