Motus Tenebrae are a band from Italy that plays gothic/doom metal and this is a review of their album "Deathrising" which will be released in 2016 by My Kingdom Music.
A very dark and melodic guitar lead starts off the album along with some heavy yet depressive riffing a few seconds later as well as adding in a great amount of clean singing vocals which also gives the music a goth rock feeling while death metal growls are also utilized at times and the songs also mix the clean and heavy parts together.
Most of the music sticks to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and you can also hear a touch of tradition doom metal in some of the guitar riffing and they also bring in a lot of influences from 90's gothic metal and as the album progresses acoustic guitars and symphonic sounds can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a couple of the tracks being long and epic in length and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and on one track they also bring in a few seconds of blast beats.
Motus Tenebrae plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in goth and doom metal and also adds in a touch of death metal to create a very dark and melancholic sounding album, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and emotional themes.
In my opinion Motus Tenebrae are a very great sounding mixture of goth and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Our Weakness" "Light that We Are" "Haunt Me" and "Desolation". 8 out of 10.
