Blacksoul Seraphim - Alms & Avarice Award winner

Blacksoul Seraphim
Alms & Avarice
by CJ "Music God" Plain at 25 February 2013, 1:53 PM

I discovered one, Morte McAdaver, on about two years ago through searching for artist submissions for my internet radio program. He submitted music for one of his other projects and I was immediately struck by his genius.

BLACKSOUL SERAPHIM is one of three bands that Joshua Carrig currently has. With the release of "Alms and Avarice", Carrig exorcises personal demons of the funeral Doom Metal variety. This is not your typical funeral doom project though. “Alms and Avarice” is the second musical project that Joshua has worked on with Thomas Cyranowski, their first effort being the band SORROWSEED.

"Dust Merchants" is a beautiful bass solo/instrumental that would be fitting of any of the bass greats. "Plague Of Pawns" takes on a wonderful, orchestral retro guitar vibe with heavy growled vocals mixed in. "Psalm of Insurrection" reminds of early SENTENCED or MY DYING BRIDE.

While this may not be everyone's particular cup of tea, I truly believe that any true fan of Metal would find something on here to love. The guys have a true reverence for music and it shines through in their art.

Give this a listen and let the amazing dynamics of this carry you to the far reaches of your mind.
