Krohm/The Haunting Presence/Moribund Records/Debemur Morti Productions/2007 CD Review

Krohm are a one man band from Seattle, Washington that plays a very depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2007 album "The Haunting Presence" which was released as a joint effort between Moribund Records and Debemur Morti Productions.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with some ocassional blast beats, while the synths bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the music without being overdone, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffs that are coming out of the guitars and at times they sound very powerful.

Rhythm guitars range from slow to midpaced black metal riffs that are very depressive and melodic with some more fast raw black metal riffing being used at times and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.

Vocals are all high pitched black metal screams mixed in with some ocassional spoken word passages and deep growls, w hile the lyrics cover Depression, Sadness, Misanthropy and Death, as for the production on this recording which was recorded at Cold Void Studio in Seattle, washington through the months od June To December in 2006 has a very dark, clean and primal feel to it.

In my opinion this was a great album from Khrom and if you are a fan of this band, you should already own this album. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lifeless Serenade" "Memories Of The Flesh" and "Syndrome". RECEMMONDED BUY.
