starvynth As hard as it is to make "plain old black metal" in a day and age when the sound has been overly saturated with cheaply face-painted bands that curse at Christians, Dumal might've brought some new life to a stale genre without having to innovate in any way other than feeling fully genuine.

Mohemian I was already positively surprised about their previous effort, but on The Confessor Dumal raised the bar one more time. If I did not know any better, I would place the band to Scandinavia, preferably Finland or Sweden, with its melodic leads and hypnotic 4/4 drumming. The repeated simplistic black-and-white artwork just adds to the overall picture. Favorite track: Through Fields of Peasant Graves.

Cole “Master ov Crabs” Galando Some damn solid black metal right here. The tightness of the playing and quality of the riffing on this release puts it right up there with best the genre has to offer. Favorite track: Through Fields of Peasant Graves.

Cameron Erlendson Wow, love this album. Compared to “The Lesser God” there’s absolutely nothing I could complain about. They maintain their speed and their passion for creating ungodly melodic riffs, while injecting a level of emotion that is executed really well. Favorite track: Amalgamation: Time, Space, And Circumstance.

about

THE CONFESSOR

US black metal veterans Dumal return with their second full length, "The Confessor" via Vigor Deconstruct and Fólkvangr records.

Very much in similar spirit to the beloved "The Lesser God" debut released in 2017, Dumal continue to master their sound with the same strength and passion with their second full length record. Channeling the riffs and drums of classic melodic black metal bands of Scandinavia and beyond, The album follows a journey of introspection into one's self, time, and space.
