Pergale are a band from Lithuania that plays a very psycho and depressive form of black'n'roll and this is a review of their 2016 album "Antropologija" which was released by Inferna Profundis Records.
A powerful sounding bass guitar and melodic solos start off the album before adding in more of an old school/punk metal sound that also brings in rough yet melodic vocals and the music bring s in a mid 70's to early 80's vibe while the production gives the music more of a modern day feeling and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts.
Psychedelic sounds can be heard briefly while clean playing is also added into certain sections of the recording and after awhile the vocals start adding in growling vocals and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses the vocals start adding in more black metal screams while the riffing starts adding more of a black'n'roll vibe.
Female vocals are also utilized at times and pianos along with goth style male vocals are also added in the music briefly and when the music speeds up it brings in more of a raw style of black metal that also introduces tremolo picking and blast beats onto the recording and clean guitars are also used at times and a later track also introduces traces of electronic music onto the recording and a later song also introduces acoustic guitars onto the recording and every song has a different sound to them and towards the end elements of folk music can be heard.
Pergale plays a musical style that has its roots in depressive black metal and they change things around by mixing in elements of rock, punk, goth, alternative and jazz to create a musical style of their own, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover love, alcohol, sex and drugs themes.
In my opinion Pergale are a very great sounding victorious psycho black rock band and if you are looking for something very original, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Durnius" and "Gabriel The Norwegian". 8/2 out of 10.
