Time for some anti-religious, keyboard backed, evil sounding blackened deathened metal! Came across this band not too long ago, and figured I'd share them.

Grief Of Emerald hails from Sweden playing an evil and haunting brand of semi symphonic/melodic black/death metal, with a lyrical focus on the downfall of religion. The guitarist presents simple but effective chunky death grooves as well as light but bleak melodic passages, p. The drummer keeps the mid-paced tempo steady while throwing in a generous amount of blast beats and machine-gun double bass drum action. A rattling mid-ranged black metal rasp is utilized to preach the unholy and blasphemous message. To help round out their evil sound, the bass and very subtle keyboards provide that vast feel that comes with bands of this style. Can't say Grief Of Emerald is the most original of bands, but they provide a nice slab of black/death metal to whoever are fans of that style. Check it out!
