Germ are a band from Australia that has been featured before in this zine that combines black metal with trance and heavy rock and this is a review of their 2012 album "Loss" which was released by Eisenwald.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with not much in the way of fast playing or blast beats being presented on this recording, while the synths bring a very experimental, dark and atmospheric sound to the music with influences from trance, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine depressive black metal with trance and heavy rock to create a sound of their own, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads, a s for the acoustic guitars they use full chords to enhance the darkness that is coming out of the music.
Vocals range from high pitched depressive black metal s creams to clean singing, while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, and heavy sound to it with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great recording from germ and if you are a fan of this band, you should c heck out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "So Lonely, Dead Lonely" and "Cold grey Dawn (A New Beginning)" . RECOMMENDED BUY.
