This is a review of another recording from Oaks Of Bethel with the musical style this time around being a mixture of raw and primitive sounding black metal mixed with dark ambient and drone while also adding in vocals this time around with the ep being called "Lakes In The Dry Season" and released by EEE Recordings.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars, a s for t he sound effects they bring elements of drone and noise to the ep.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding with elements of drone and dark ambient being thrown into the riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals range from clean singing to spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover Nature, Culture, and Ancestry, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound with the only song on this recording being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding ep from Oaks Of Bethel and if you are a fan of raw and primitive black metal mixed with dark ambient, noise and drone, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED BUY.
