With their fourth release, NEGATIVE MEGALOMANIA, Italian dark/doom metal combo Forgotten Tomb continue on the twisted path they've been traveling, albeit with some new forks in the road. Like their previous releases, the music is oppressively bleak, with slow to mid-tempo dirges dominating. This time, however, the band's evolution includes surprisingly clear vocals from lead depressive Herr Morbid. His usual tormented growls are now paired with more traditional singing, only making the grim, suicidal, lyrical content all the more crystalline. While black metal is an obvious stylistic touchstone, Forgotten Tomb also looks to classic doom influences like Black Sabbath and Mercyful Fate. With atmospheric guitars creating a gloomy haze and coloring the aggression a moody, introspective shade, NEGATIVE MEGALOMANIA marks a comfortable fusion of metal crunch with funereal ambiance.
