A Cloud Forest are a 2 man band from Phoenix, Arizona that plays a very atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2010 demo "Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep".
Drums range from midpaced very fast and brutal with alot of blast beats, while the keyboards when they are utilized are very tragic and tmospheric sounding, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they sound very powerful.
Rhythm guitars range from midpaced to fast raw black metal riffs that also utilize a good amount of melody in ddition the outro has somewhat of a psychedelic feel and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams mixed in with some deep growls, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very powerful, heavy and raw sound to it.
In my opinion A Cloud Forest are a very good raw sounding atmospheric black metal band, and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Black Clouds At Sunset' and "Metamorphosis". RECOMMENDED BUY.
