The Phantom Carriage are a band from France that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that mixes raw and primitive sounding black metal with dark hardcore and this is a review of their 2013 album "Fall" which was released by Throatruiner Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording as for the sound effects which are only used briefly they bring a very dark sound to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine raw and primitive sounding black metal with dark hardcore as well as throwing in a good amount of melody in the riffing as well as some technical parts and there are no guitar solos or leads present on t his recording.
Vocals range from high pitched black metal screams to hardcore style growls and shouts as well as a brief use of clean singing in addition there is a brief use of death metal growls being utilized, while the lyrics cover dark and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very, dark heavy, raw and primitive sound to it with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from The Phantom Carriage and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Today We Stand" "Dreamers Will Never Stop Dreaming" and "Devils, Gods, Us. RECOMMENDED BUY.
