Oaks Of Bethel are a band from Chicago, Illinois that plays black metal mixed with psychedelic and drone and this is a review of their 2012 ep "Orange Triad" which was released by EEE 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 are all slow to mid paced riffs that combine black metal, drone and psychedelic together to create a sound of their own and they never speed up even when the drums are played and fast and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals and song writing are all absent from this recording with the music being all instrumental, while the song themes cover nature, culture and ancestry, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it with t he only song being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Oaks Of Bethel are a very great sounding hybrid of black metal, drone and psychedelic and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED BUY.
