Meuchelmord are a solo project from Germany that has been featured before in this zine and plays a depressive form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2016 album "Nostolgia".
A powerful bass guitar sound starts off the album along with some atmospheric synths a few seconds later which also leads up to more of a heavier and melodic style and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody and after awhile high pitched black metal screams make their presence known on the recording.
At times the vocals bring in a small amount of deep growls and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses they also bring in a tragic sounding keyboard instrumental which also gives the music more of an atmospheric edge and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction while also bringing in a brief use of thunder sounds.
Mechelmord creates another recording that remains true to the depressive black metal style of previous releases while also being very guitar driven, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover depression and pain themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Mechelmord and if you are a fan of depressive black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS "Rabensang" "Zwischenspiel" and "Roter Mond". 8 out of 10.
