Ancst/Depravation/Yehonala Tapes/2018 Split EP Review

vendredi 2 mars 2018 à 07:39

  This  is  a  review  of  a  split  ep  between  Germany's  Ancst  and  Depravation  which  was  released  by  Yehonala  Tapes  and  we  will  start  off  the  review  with  Ancst  returning  with  their  melodic  mixture  of  black  metal  and  crust.

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  blast  beats  and  raw  tremolo  picking  while  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  the  vocals  are  mostly  angry  hardcore  and  crust  style  screams  along  with  the  songs  also  bringing  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  spoken  word  parts  are  added  onto  the  second  track  as  well as  a  small  amount  of  melodic  guitar  leads,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  social  criticism  and  anti  capitalism  themes. 

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Ancst  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  band,  you  should  enjoy  their  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "The  Old  Darkness".

  Next  up  is  Depravation  another  band  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  on  this  recording  moves  way  from  the  crust  and  hardcore  elements  and  focuses  more  on  a  raw  and  melodic  style  of  black  metal  with  some death  metal  touches

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  a  very  fast  and  raw  sound  which  also  uses  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  along  with  some  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  a  few  seconds  later  while  the  riffs  also  bring  in  a  great  amount  of  melody  as  well  as  the  songs  also  bringing  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  you  can  also  hear  a  touch  of  death  metal  at  times,  the  production  sounds  very  raw  and  heavy  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness  and  occultism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Depravation  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of t he  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Moloch".

  In  conclusion  I  feel  this  is  a  very  great  sounding  split  and  i  would  recommend  it  to  all  fans  of  black  metal  and  crust.  8  out  of  10.

  Ihoosuhree  are  a  band  from  Belgium  that  plays  a  very  dark  and  oppressive  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  album  analysis  Paralysis"  which  will  be  released  in  May  by  Babylon  Doom  Cult  Records.

  Deep  black  metal  screams  and  growls  start  off  the  album  along  with  some  melodic  yet  heavy  riffing  while  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  bring  in  a  decent  amount  of  blast  beats  and  the  solos  also  use  a  great  amount  of  melody  as  well  as  the  music  also  mixing  in  progressive  and  avant  garde  structures.

  Clean  playing  can  also  be  heard  at  times  along  with  the  music  also  mixing  in  a  great  amount  of  experimental  elements  along  with  the  songs  also  bringing  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  as  well  as  the  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  also  giving  the  songs  a  more  raw  feeling  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  a  couple  of  the  tracks are  long  and  epic  in  length,  spoken word  parts  and  depressive  screams  are  also  added  onto  the  closing  track.

  Ihoosuhree  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  dark,  oppressive  and  experimental  sounding,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  heavy  while  the  lyrics  cover  the  darkest  corners  of  the  universe  and  the  human  mind.

  In  my  opinion  Ihoosuhree  are  a  very  great  sounding  dark,  oppressive  and  experimental  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Rite  De  Passage"  and  "21st  Century  Irrationality".  8  out  of  10.

Myrholt/Vinter/Myrholt Design/2018 EP Review

jeudi 1 mars 2018 à 04:09

  Myrholt  are  a  solo  project  from  Norway  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  an  old  school  and  Norwegian  style  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2018  ep  "Vinter"  which  was  released  by  Myrholt  Deisgn.

  Atmospheric  sounding  keyboards  start  off  the  ep  which  also  mixes  in  with  the  heavier  sections  of  the  music  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  the  riffs  also  bring  in  a  great  amount  of  melody  as  well  as  the  vocals  being  mostly  grim  black  metal  screams.

  Both  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  in  length  while  the  music  is  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  90's  along  with  the  solos  and  leads  also  being  done  in  a  very  melodic  fashion  and  all  of  the  music  sticks  to  mostly  a  slow  or  mid  paced  direction  with  only  a  small  amount  of  melodic  guitar  leads  and  when t he  music  finally  speeds  up a   small  amount  of  tremolo  picking and  blast  beats  can b e  heard  which  also  gives  the  song  a more  raw  feeling,  acoustic  guitars  can  also  be  heard  briefly.

  Myrholt  creates  another  recording  that  remains  true  to  his  old  school style  of  Norwegian  black  metal,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  Norse  Mythology,  Nature  and  occultism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Myrholt  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  old  school  Norwegian  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Heimdall".  8  out  of  10.
