Bihargam are a band from Kentucky that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a very raw and melodic mixture of black and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 album "Ove Tenebre" which will be released in October.
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the album along with some grim black metal screams a few seconds later. All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them while the faster sections of the songs also add in a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style. Elements of thrash are also added into some of the guitar riffing along with some of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as the vocals also getting very deep and demonic sounding at times and clean playing can also be heard briefly on the closing track
On this recording Bihargam takes their style of black metal into more of a melodic direction as well as mixing in more thrash metal elements to take their mus to another level. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are a concept album based upon the Metabaron graphic novel series written by Alejandro Jodorowsky.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Bihargam and if you are a fan of raw and melodic black and thrash metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Inanimate Son" "The Metallic Consciousness" and "The Screaming Planet". 8 out of 10.
