This is the final review of a recording from A Cackle Or A Coughing Fit" with the musical style continuing their original approach to experimental black metal with the album being self released in 2013 and called "Sea In A Circle".
"Dogfish" starts off with a spoken word recital of Mary Oliver's poem while also adding in some synths, drum blast beats which leads up to the depressive black metal screams and cries.
"Wire Thicket" starts off with drums, avant garde synths, banjos and black metal screams which leads up to some melodic post rock guitar leads.
"You Are The Eyes Of The Wild" starts off with a few seconds of talking before the black metal screams, drums, and avant garde post rock synths kick in and as the song moves you can hear some acoustic guitars and banjos.
"The Bridge And The Nest" starts off with drums and video game style synths along with some emo style clean singing and black metal screams before going into nature sounds and adding in banjos which leads to some amplified guitar effects, blast beats and post black metal style guitar riffing.
''Shadow On The Water" starts off with drums, 80's style synths and high pitched black metal screams which also add in some depressive and suicidal cries before the clean singing comes in towards the end.
"Bells Or Wings" starts off with slow drumming and light primitive black metal guitar riffs which leads to the synths and depressive screams while also adding in elements of post rock.
"Wrinkling" starts off with experimental sound effects before the drums, guitar riffs and black metal screams kick in along with some dark synths before evolving into blast beats and primitive guitar riffing.
"Tangle" starts off with powerful drumming and synths along with some banjos while also mixing in elements of post rock along with a blast beat towards the end.
Lyrics cover poetic themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion t his is another great sounding album from A Cackle Or A Coughing Fit and if you are looking for something very original, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dogfish" "Shadow On The Water" and "Wrinkling". RECOMMENDED BUY.
