Artisian are a solo project from Hungary that plays a mixture of raw black metal and crust punk and this is a review of his self released 2020 ep "Skulls And Bones".
A very fast crust punk sound starts off the ep along with some deep yet grim vocals a few seconds later. When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the songs more of a raw feeling while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them and blast beats are also added into the faster sections of the songs.
Most of the music sticks mostly to either a slow or mid tempo direction while all of the riffs are also done on power chords along with one of the tracks also adding in some of the slower riffing. The last 2 tracks are done in more of a folk music style as well as adding in some percussion's and clean vocals.
Artisian plays a musical style that takes raw black metal and crust punk and mixes them together to create a sound of his own as well as experimenting with Scottish folk music on a couple of songs. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism, Darkness, Misanthropy and Folklore themes.
In my opinion Artisian are a very great sounding mixture of raw black metal and crust punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "...And God Has Turned His Face Away" and "Black Sun". 8 out of 10.
