Dissolve Patterns are a band from Belgium that plays an avant garde form of black metal and this is a review of their self titled 2022 album which will b e released on April 29th by Brucia Records.
Clean playing and cello's start off the album while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them. At times the music also gets very progressive and experimental sounding along with the music also adding in some jazz elements and during the faster sections of the songs a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while spoken word parts can also be heard briefly. Most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length along with the music also bringing in a great amount of avant garde touches as well as the tremolo picking giving the songs more a raw feeling when they are utilized.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffs also adding in a good amount of melody and growls can also be heard in certain sections of the album, at times the music also gets very dissonant sounding and one song also introduces synths onto the album. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the dissolution of all preconceptions and dogmas in order to find the ultimate expressive freedom.
In my opinion Dissolve Patterns are a very great sounding avant garde black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "II" and "IIII". 8 out of 10.
