Italy's Mountain Hermit has returned with a new recording which shows the music going into more of an instrumental, experimental and avant garde style of atmospheric black metal from his previous releases and this is a review of his 2020 album "Parapsychedelic Eye"which was released by Nailed Nazarene Industries.
Gothic horror movie style keyboards start off the album along with some melodic guitar riffing a few seconds later. The solos and leads also bring in a great amount of melody while a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the drum b eats are programmed.
At times the music also gets very atmospheric sounding while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. Experimental and avant garde elements can also be heard in some parts of the music along with some clean playing also being added into some parts of the recording and all of the music sticks to either a slow or mid tempo style, stringed instruments can also be heard briefly.
On this recording Mountain Hermit takes his instrumental style of atmospheric black metal into more of an avant garde and experimental direction and the production sounds very dark and raw.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Mountain Hermit and if you are a fan of experimental, avant garde, instrumental and atmospheric black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hills" and "A Night In The Early 90's". 8 out of 10.
