BLACK PATH “Final Act: Martyr”

Self released, 2017

Music: Death Metal


Duration: 45 minutes(11 tracks)

Country: Greece

Death Metal, in general, is pretty vast and diverse with a lot of bands trying something new to make name for themselves. However, we get to see a lot of newer acts taking the progressive/technical route to fetch success. Technical death metal is pretty wanked these says with a handful of bands trying the Gorguts-era death metal. Fortunately, I get to find some listenable wanky death metal bands that are good enough for a single listen. With 2017 offering a lot of releases, both good and bad ones-there are a shit ton of albums that were missed. One among them is the proggy Deathcore/Death metal outfit Black Path’s 2017 studio effort, Final Act: Martyr.

I often consider Hellenic Metal bands as the most underrated ones. Not only they are a bit remote, there is a little room for them to get an exposure. That is why I asked Black Path for a review opportunity. The folks were happy to get their album reviewed and, here we are! In order to avoid a TLDR kinda review, my plan was to write a crisp review so that people could get into these guys. Final Act: Martyr is a must listen if you want to get a clear cut idea on how modern age death metal sounds. The album itself is full of surprises and thick guitar riffs all laid off with a perfect production, thereby ensuring that the album doesn’t have any major flaws.

However, if only the band took their skills on making an original sound, I would have placed this album among the best of 2017. But at the same time, Black Path make sure that you get a good journey while listening to the album as a whole. The proggy parts pack a melodic punch whereas the Deathcore-esque breakdown moments are guaranteed banger. To wrap everything in one sentence, Black Path has surely made a foundation for themselves with this album. Their next task is to make something special on their next effort. I can’t wait till these guys drop the next album. Definitely worth listening to the album, and I recommend the album for all those Death Metal fanatics out there. Stay on the Path!
