Portland, Oregon's Mizmor have returned with a new recording where he teams up with Andrew Black and together they create a mixture of dark ambient, drone, black and doom metal and this is a review of their 2020 collaboration album "Dialetheia" which will be released on November 20th by Gilead Media.
Atmospheric sounding drones start off the album while the synths also bring in elements of dark ambient, Both of the tracks are also very long and epic in length along as the music also getting more diverse sounding as the recording progresses as well as some acoustic guitars also being utilized briefly.
Field recordings can also be heard briefly while both of the songs are also instrumentals along with both tracks also sounding very different from each other. One the second track guitar amp sounds and distortion can also be heard which also adds in the heaviness of doom metal once the slow riffing makes their presence known as well as the dark atmospheres also adding in some touches of black metal.
On this recording Mizmor takes his mixture of drone, black and doom metal and mixes it with Andrew Black's dark ambient style to create something very original as well as keeping most of the music instrumental while the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding collaboration between Mizmor and Andrew Black and if you are a fan of dark ambient, drone, black and doom metal, you should check out the album. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Nostalgic Dystopian". 8 out of 10.
