Fjoi Myore are a band from France that plays a very raw and primitive form of old school black metal and this is a review of their 2012 ep "The Northern Cold" which was released by Broken Limb Recordings.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, 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 old school black metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding along with some atmospheric elements and melody being thrown into the riffing at times and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized use finger picking and full chords to enhance the dark atmosphere of the music.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams that have a very depressive tone to them at times as well as a brief use of deep death metal growls, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Fjoi Myore are a very great sounding old school, raw and primitive black metal band with atmospheric elements and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Orage" "Mist" and "The Walkyries" which is a Ancalagon cover. RECOMMENDED BUY.
