Verwustung/Soft Hands, Pale Moon/2012 EP Review


  This  is  a  review  of  another  recording  from  Verwustung  with t he  musical  style  being  black  metal  mixed  with  ambient,  drone,  doom,  post  rock  and  shoegaze  with the  ep  being  self  released  in  2012  and  called  "Soft  Hands,  Pale  Moon".

  Drums   range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized  at  times,  while t he  synths  and  sound  effects  bring  elements  of  ambient,  experimental  and  shoegaze  to  the  music,  as  for  the  bass  playing  it  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of t he  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from s low,  mid  paced  to  fast  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sounding  with  some  doom  metal  influences  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  at  times,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  dark  and  melodic  sounding  post  rock/shoegaze  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals  which  are  mixed  down  low  in  the  mix  and  hard  to  hear  are  very  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams,  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  and  poetic  themes,  as  for  the  production  it has  a  very  dark, r aw  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  recording  from  Verwustung  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  shoegaze,  post  black  metal  and  doom,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
