I can't find any good metal bands on Bandcamp as of late, so I decided to look through my computer for albums I downloaded from Bandcamp in the past. I eventually stumbled upon this. Live Burial is a doom/death band that comes from a British town called Newcastle upon Tyne. They formed in 2012 and released their first demo one year later.
The production is pretty raw. It feels like a death metal demo that was recorded in the late '80s. It's slightly muffled and abrasive, but you can still hear everything just fine. The drums play slow and crawling beats that feature great cymbal work and a strong snare sound. Despite being a doom/death band, there are moments where they play some fast and powerful blast beats. The bass is pretty prominent and they play some great riffs that help bolster the rest of the music. This is especially obvious on the last song.
The vocals aren't your typical death metal vocals. They're more of a gravelly death/thrash scream. I wish the vocals were more of a growl, but the screams still work fine here. The guitars are the best part of this demo. They play a lot of piercing high-pitched chords that send us back to the earliest days of metal, back when Black Sabbath reigned supreme. There are also moments when they pick up the pace and play some shredding riffs that embody the spirit of '80s thrash metal. They even play a few sweet solos on occasion.
This demo was short, simple and straightforward, but it's still good. I really loved the high-pitched guitar work. You can download this album for free from their Bandcamp page.
