Witcher are a band from Hungary that has had a couple of albums reviewed before in this zine and plays a very atmospheric and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2012 ep "Nema gyasz" which was re-issued in 2020 by Filosefem Records and also contains a bonus track that was not available on the original version.
A keyboard orientated intro starts off the ep before going into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction while also retaining the atmospheric elements. Most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length along with the vocals being mostly grim sounding black metal screams and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
The keyboards also give the songs more of an epic atmosphere when they are utilized while the music also has its depressive moments. All of the music sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction along with the music also showing some influences of the mid 90's keyboard orientated black metal bands as well as one of the tracks also being an instrumental.
On this ep Witcher played mostly a slow or mid tempo style of keyboard orientated atmospheric black metal. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Hungarian and cover depression, darkness and paganism themes.
In my opinion this was another great sounding recording from Witcher and if you are a fan of atmospheric and depressive black metal, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Egyedul" and "Keresztuton". 8 out of 10.
