Ah Ciliz/Led Astray/Broken Limb Recordings/2012 CD Review


  Ah  Ciliz  are  a  band  from  California  that  plays  a  very  atmospheric  and  depressive  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  album  "Led  Astray"  which  was  released  by  Broken  Limb Recordings.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  playing  with  some fast  drumming  and  blast  beats  being  present  on  this  recording,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  atmospheric  and  depressive  black  metal  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  along  with  some  raw  and  primitive  sounding  elements  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  at  times,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  sounding  depressive  black   metal guitar  solos  and  leads,  as  for  the  acoustic  guitars  when  they  are  utilized  use  finger  picking  and  full  chords  to  enhance  the  dark  atmosphere  of  the  recording.

  Vocals  are  all  high  pitched  depressive  black  metal  screams, while  the  lyrics  cover  Sorrow,  Depression,  Nature  and  Ancient  Cultures,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  with  most  of  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  Ah  Ciliz  are  a  very  great  sounding  atmospheric,  depressive  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Ailing"  and  "Eyes  Of  The  Trees".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
