Oerheks are a solo project from Belgium that plays a very mid tempo and synth orientated form of black metal and this is a review of their 2022 album "Cagghenvinna" which will be released in August by Amor Fati Productions.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the album while epic sounding synths are also mixed in with the heavier sections of the songs. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with the riffs also adding in a great amount of melody and all of the tracks are also very long and epic in length.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style while spoken word parts can also be heard on a few tracks. The songs also mix in a decent amount of old school influences along with the music also having its atmospheric moments as well as some blast beats and tremolo picking also being utilized when the album finally speeds up which also gives the recording more of a raw feeling, clean playing can also be heard briefly and the main focus is more on a slow or mid tempo direction.
Oerheks plays a style of black metal t hat is very mid tempo and synth orientated. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Flemish and cover ancient times, myths and lore.
In my opinion Oerheks are a very great sounding mid tempo and synth orientated black metal solos project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Door Doomen Overtogen" and "Stilte, Deel een: Een Storm der Tijd". 8 out of 10.
