A Cackle Or A Coughing Fit are a 1 man band from Rhode Island that plays a very experimental form of post black metal and this is a review of their self released 2010 single "Little Wanderer, Were You Followed".
"Little Wanderer, Were You Followed" starts off with some fast acoustic guitar playing before the grim sounding screams keep in with the riffing changing paces around a bit after awhile the song goes into a more folk direction along with clean singing while still keeping the screams in some parts as well as utilizing some finger picking.
"The House That Was Once Your Home In The Country" starts off with acoustic guitar playing with some distortion in the background before the drum blast beats and high pitched black metal screams kick in and after a couple of minutes the song goes more into a soft folk rock direction along with some clean singing.
"Seasonal Depression" starts off with some acoustic guitars before getting heavy and raw with the grim and high pitched screams for a few seconds with a few seconds of soft playing before the heavy distortion kicks in.
Lyrics on the single cover dark and depressive themes, while the production has a very raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion A Cackle Or A Coughing Fit are a very great sounding and original experimental, acoustic black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this single. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The House That Was Once Your Home In The Country". RECOMMENDED BUY.
