This is the final review of a recording from Beitoch which continues their hybrid sounding of instrumental, raw and primitive sounding atmospheric, black/pagan metal, doom and dark ambient with the album called "Duchas" which was released by HiArcTow.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the synths bring a very dark, atmospheric and ambient sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it 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 atmospheric black/pagan metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding with some doom metal influences which are used even more this time around than on past recordings along with some melody being thrown into the riffing at times, while the lead guitars are very dark sounding black/doom guitar leads and solos that utilize some melodic elements.
Vocals and song writing are all absent from t his recording with the music being all instrumental, while the song themes are inspired by the Northern Ireland's landscapes, as for t he production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it with one of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Beitoch and if you are a fan of instrumental primitive black/pagan metal, doom and dark ambient, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Abyss Of Time" "A Dream Of The Dead" "Journey At First Light" and "Gods Of The Earth". RECOMMENDED BUY.
