Mesarthim are a duo from Australia that plays a very atmospheric and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Isolate" which was released by Avantgarde Music.
Ambient and space music sounds start off the album before going into more of a heavy and atmospheric music direction a few seconds later that also sees high pitched black metal screams making their presence known on the recording and they also have a very depressive tone to them and they also mix in tragic sounding keyboards.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they also give the music more of a melodic edge and they also mix in elements of synth pop and electronic music into certain sections of the recording and the songs stick to mostly a slow or mid paced musical direction and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts and they close the album with a couple of instrumental songs.
Mesarthem plays a style of black metal that is very keyboard driven, atmospheric and depressive while also mixing in elements of ambient and space music to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover cosmos and Existence themes.
In my opinion Mesarthem are a very great sounding atmospheric and depressive black metal band and if you area fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Declaration" and "Abyss". 8 out of 10.
