Fulgoria are a band from Missouri that plays a progressive mixture of death metal, hardcore and grind and this is a review of their 2015 album "Strategem" which will be released in March by Housecore Records.
A very dark and avant garde sound starts off the album along with some spoken word samples and after the intro the music starts going into more of a heavy and melodic musical direction that bring s in elements of prog metal and angry hardcore style yells and when the music speeds up it brings in elements of grind along with a great amount of blast beats.
Throughout the recording their is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and most of the death metal element s can be heard in the heavy guitar riffing which also brings in a touch of groove metal to the bands musical style and at times you can hear a small amount of growls being utilized in certain sections of the recording and there is a brief track that bring s in elements of ambient noise before returning back to a heavier direction on the following tracks.
Fulgoria takes a very progressive style of death metal and mixes it with hardcore and grind to create a very dark and heavy sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Fulgoria are a very great sounding mixture of progressive death metal, hardcore and grind and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Source" "Artifice" and "Meridian". 8 out of 10.
