Adar/Into The Frozen Ocean/Mountain Drought Distro/2009 E.P Review

Adar are a band from Littelton, Colorado that has also been interviewed with a musical style that i would described as being raw black metal with a death metal edge by this zine before and this is a review of their 2009 E.P "Into The Frozen Ocean" w hich was released by Mountain Drought Distro.

Drums range from midpaced to fast playing with some brutal blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone and seems to follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and on the last song they sound very powerful.

Rhythm guitars are mostly midpaced to fast raw black metal riffs that also have a great amount of death metal influences and a great sense of melody, while the lead guitars combine black and death metal influences together in the solos and also utilize a great amount of skill with some technical parts, as for the accoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to bring a darker sound to the music.

Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some deep death metal growls being thrown in at times, while the lyrics cover dark themes with an occult edge, as for the production it has a very dark and raw feel to it.

In my opinion Adar are a very good black metal band, and if you are a fan of black metal that uses alot of talent and skil, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blood Stained Moon" and "Waves Of Oblivion". RECEMMONDED BUY
