Feign/Into The Void/Into The Night Records/2015 Demo Review

mercredi 6 mai 2015 à 09:12

  Feign  are a  solo  project  from  Maine  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  a  very  melodic  and  atmospheric  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2015  demo  "Into  The  Void"  which  was  released  by Into  The  Night  Records.

  A  very  dark,  melodic  and  atmospheric black  metal  sound  starts  off  the  demo  along  with  some  solos  and  leads  that  also  dominate  throughout  the  recording  and  also  bring  a  a lot  of  epic  melodies  into the  songs  and  when  vocals  are  added  into  the  music  they  are  very  grim  soundign  and  high  pitched  screams.

  Deep  growls  can  be  heard  in  some  parts  of  the  songs  and  most  of  the  tracks  are  also  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  when  acoustic  guitars  are  utilized  they  give  the  music  more  of  a  progressive  feeling  and  blast  beats  can also  be  heard  at times  along  with  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  along  with  the  faster  sections  bringing  in  more  of  a  raw style  of  black  metal  and  the  synths  also  play  a  huge  part  in  all  3  of  the  tracks  and  the  second  song  brings  in  a  brief  use  of  spoken  word  parts  and  he  closes  the  ep  with  a  brief  instrumental  track  which  also  brings  in  a  touch  of  ambient.

  Feign  creates  another  demo  that  remains  true  to  a  very  melodic  and  atmospheric  style of  black  metal  as  well  as  demonstrating  a  great  amount  of  talent  and  skill  that  is  very   close  to  a  great  amount  of  the  veterans  or  legends  that  play  this  musical  style,  the  production  sounds  very  powerful  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness,  cosmic  and  metaphysical  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another great  sounding  recording  from  Feign  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  melodic  and  atmospheric  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  demo.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Soulcrusher".  8  out  of  10.

  A very  dark,  raw  and  atmospheric  black  metal  sound  starts  off  the  ep  along  with  some  ambient  style  synths  and  a  few  seconds  alter  the  music  speeds up  and  adds  in  high  pitched  screams  and  blast  beats  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  you  can  also  hear  a  touch  of  post  rock  and  shoegaze  in  some  parts  of  the songs.

  The  synths  on the  recording  have  a  very  dominant  sound  throughout  the  recording  while  the  music  still  retains  a  raw  black  metal  style  and  when solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they are  very  dark  and  melodic  sounding  and  also  add  elements  of  post  black  metal  into  the  songs  and  there  are  also  a  couple  of  instrumental  tracks  present  on  the  ep  while  most  of  the  songs  still  use  a  great  amount  of  vocals  and  noise  soundcapes  and  clean  playing  can  also be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording.

  Sorrow  Plagues  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  modern  and  atmospheric  sounding  and also  mixes  in  a  decent  amount of  post  rock,  shoegaze,  ambient  and  noise  elements  to  add  more  creativity  to  the  songs,  the  production  sounds  very dark,  heavy  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness,  emptiness,  solitude  and  sorrow.

  In  my  opinion  Sorrow  Plagues  are  a  very  great  sounding  atmospheric  black  metal  project  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Corroding  Soul"  and  "Acceptance".  8  out  of  10.

mardi 5 mai 2015 à 09:20
  Arkaik  Excruciation  are a  band  from  Spain  that  plays  a brutal  mixture  of  war,  black,  death  and  thrash  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2014 album  "Among  The  Vortex  Of  Chaos"  which  was  originally  released  by  Black  mass  Recordson  cassette  but  now  being    re-issued  on  cd  in  2015  by  Tertius Occulus Perceptio.

  A  very  dark  and  evil  sounding  intro  starts  off  the  album  before  going  into  a  mid  80's  death  thrash  metal  direction  and  adding  in  bestial  black  metal  growls  which  also  gives  the  music  elemwnts  of  war  metal  and  you  can  also  hear  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  in  the  faster  sections  of  the  music  along  with  some  elements  of  raw  black  metal.

  Morbid  sounding  melodies  can  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  when  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  very  raw  and  chaotic  sounding  and  there  is  also  a  track  that  is  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  which  also  brings  in  a  great  amount  of  early  90's  extreme  metal  influences  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound to  them  and  the  last  trrack  brings  in  the  sounds  of  human  torture  and  harsh  noises.

  Arkaik  Excruciation  takes  the  rawest,  heaviest  and  most  of  brutal  styles of  90's  war,  black,  death  and  thrash  metal  to  create  some  of the  most  darkest  and  bestial  extreme  metal  that  there  is  out  there,  the  production  sounds  very  dark,  raw  and  old  school  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness,  death  and  necromantic  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Arkaik  Excruciation  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw  and  bestial  mixture  of  war,  black,  death  and  thrash  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "At  Graveyard"  and  "Lunar  Carnage".  8  out  of  10.

Total Negation/Zeitzeuge/Temple Of Torturous/2015 CD Review

lundi 4 mai 2015 à 01:39

  Total  Negation  are  a  solo  project  from  Germany  that  plays  a  mixture  of  raw  and  depressive  black  metal,  doom  and  krautrock  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2015  album  "Zeitzeuge"  which  will  be  released  in  June  by  Temple  Of  Torturous.

  A  very  distorted  and  melodic  sound  starts  off  the  album  and  a  few  seconds  later  melodic  guitar  leads  and  once  grim  screams  are  added  into  the  music  the  recording  starts  bringing  in  more  of  a  depressive  black  metal  style  and  a  good  portion  of  the  tracks  are  very  long  and  epic  and  length  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.

  Doom  metal  element s can  be  heard  quite  a  bit  in  the  slower  sections  of  the  music  and  when  synths  are  added  onto  the  recording  they  give  the  music  more  of  a  dark  and  atmospheric  sound  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  acoustic  guitars  and  elements  of  krautrock  which  also  gives  the  music  more  of  an  experimental  feeling.

  When  the  music  speeds  up  the  music  starts  adding  in  a  small  amount  of  blast  beats  and  more  of  a  raw  black  metal  style  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  at  times  some  of  the  guitar  leads  bring  in  elements  of  post  black  metal  and  you  can  also  hear  clean  playing  being  added  into  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  as  the  album  progresses  the  songs  start  bringing  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  one  of  the  tracks  also  brings  in  a  small  amount  of  thrash  influences.

  Total  Negation  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  a  very  modern,  raw  and  depressive  style  of  black  metal  and  mixes  it  with  doom  metal  and  krautrock  to  create  some  very  original  sounding  music,  the  production  sounds  very  original  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  German  and  covers  a  story  of  a  contemporary  witness  who  breaks  under  the  pressure  of  controlling  the  life  and  death  of  others.

  In  my  opinion  Total  Negation  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  depressive  black  metal,  doom  and  krautrock  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  solo  project.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Fluechtling"  and  "Zeitzeuge".  8  out  of  10.
