Verwoed are a band from the Netherlands that plays a psychedelic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Bodemloos" which will be released in July by Argento Records.
A very melodic black metal guitar lead starts off the album and they are also a very huge parts of all of t he songs before going into more of a heavier yet atmospheric direction which also introduces grim and high pitched screams onto the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
A great amount of tremolo picking can be heard during the faster sections of the songs which also gives the music more of a raw black metal feeling and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Clean playing can be heard in some of the songs and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses psychedelic elements are added into the music more and all 3 of the tracks sound very different from each other and when synths sre utilized they give the music more of an ambient feeling.
Verwoed plays a style of black metal that is very modern, heavy, raw and atmospheric while also mixing in elements of psychedelia and ambient to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in the musicians native tongue and cover nihilistic themes.
In my opinion Verwoed are a very great sounding psychedelic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Bodemloos". 8/5 out of 10.
