Days Of Wrath
Napalm Records

Severely tuned down and brutal as hell, Syrach's punishing riffs and growling vocals are full of despair and desolation. I can hear a big influence from doom metal peers "My Dying Bride" but with a slightly more unprocessed and raw sound. The guitars sound like they could not go any lower without being unplayable (which is a major problem with tuning down too low, you lose definition and your sound tends to be muddy) but that's not the case here. Syrach has found that niche' that falls right on the line without losing clarity in their notes and keeping the massive sound they are going for. Fans of doom metal take note!!
