This is a review of another recording from Portent with the musical continuing their hybrid sound of old school black metal and doom with the ep being self released in 2013 and called "Dismal Dieties".
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with not much in t he way of fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid riffs riffs that combine early 90's occult black metal with doom to create a sound of their own with some melody being thrown into the riffing at times as well as a brief use of clean playing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding dark metal guitar leads.
Vocals range from grim sounding black metal screams to deep growls as well as a brief use of spoken words, while the lyrics cover darkness and occult themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Portent and if you are a fan of occult black metal mixed with doom, you should check out this e.p. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Woven" and "Paranoiac Invocation". RECOMMENDED BUY.
