A Cackle Or A Coughing Fit/Little Wanderer, Were You Followed/2010 Single Review


  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.
