Chagrin is a solo project from Australia that plays a very atmospheric form of post black metal and this is a review of his self released 2019 album "Endless Night".
Melodic yet depressive sounding guitar leads start off the album while the vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched sounding black metal screams. The music also mixes both the heavy and atmospheric parts together along with one track also introducing stringed instruments onto the recording.
Clean playing can also be heard on some of the tracks along with the music also adding in elements of post rock. The riffs also bring in a great amount of melody along with one track also adding in a brief use of radio noises, some tracks also add in thunder and rain sounds, all of the music also sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction.
Chagrin plays a style of post black metal that is very slow, melodic and atmospheric sounding with some depressive touches. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark, depressive and suicidal themes.
In my opinion Chagrin is a very great sounding atmospheric post black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Left Alone I'm" and "My Heart Will Burn". 8 out of 10.
