Poisonous Wind are a solo project from Denver, Colorado that plays a mixture of war, black and death metal and this is a review of his 2021 album "Conflagration Of The Sty" which will be released on cassette on February 26th by Nailbat Tapes.
A very distorted and tortured sounding intro starts off the album before going into a very fast, raw and brutal war metal direction which also adds in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them.
The songs also add in a decent amount of 90's influences along with the tracks also adding in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. A small amount of dark sounding melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing while the music also mixes in elements of death metal at times as well as the solos and leads being done in a very melodic yet old school style when they are utilized briefly and the whole album also sticks to a heavier direction.
Poisonous Wind plays a musical style that takes war, black and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness, occultism and war themes.
In my opinion Poisonous Wind are a very great sounding mixture of war, black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "To Serve Is To Be Enslaved" "Intoxicated by The Illusion Of Dominance" "Cries Silenced By Arrogance" and "The Ashen City Rejoices". 8 out of 10.
