Postmortal are a band from Poland that plays funeral doom/death metal and this is a review of their 2018 ep "Soil" which was released by Solitude Productions.

Clean yet distorted playing starts off the ep which also takes the music into a heavier funeral doom metal direction along with a great amount of depressive sounding melodies while the vocals are mostly death metal growls along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style.

All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while spoken word parts can also be heard briefly along with all of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as the music capturing atmosphere without the use of a keyboard and all of the songs stick to a very slow direction and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.

Postmortal plays a style of funeral doom/death metal that is very slow and melodic sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover death, doom, sadness and pain themes.

In my opinion Postmortal are a very great sounding funeral doom/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Nighttime Serenity".

Primo ep per i polacchi Postmortal, che si erano già messi in mostra la scorsa estate con il singolo Heart of Depair che è valsa loro l’attenzione di una label importante in ambito doom come la Solitude.

Ogni uscita sotto l’egida dell’etichetta russa crea sempre un certa aspettativa, per cui da Soil ci sia attendeva quanto meno di scoprire se i Postmortal fossero un nome sul quale puntare qualche euro.
Da questi circa venticinque minuti, distribuiti su tre tracce, otteniamo risposte senz’altro positive ma non ancora definitive, nel senso che la band di Cracovia dimostra di maneggiare con tutta la padronanza del caso una materia ostica come quella del funeral death doom, offrendo nel complesso una buona prova alla quale manca ancora la scintilla, il momento memorabile che è poi l’unico modo per rendere peculiare un’offerta musicale collocata all’interno di un genere dal ridotto spazio di manovra.
Elusion, Nighttime Serenity e Seven sono tre buoni brani, dall’andamento dolente e sufficientemente melodico, ben punteggiato da un riffing preciso e da un growl al’altezza della situazione: il tutto rende Soil un ep altamente consigliato a chi ama queste sonorità, che avrà così la possibilità di scorgere gli eventuali prodromi di una futura band di primo livello.
