Mizmor are a 1 man band from Oregon that plays a mixture of black metal, doom and drone and this is is a review of their self released 2013 ep "Untitled Winter".
"V" starts off with some clean but still dark acoustic guitar playing which utilizes both finger picking and full chords and after awhile drum beats make their way into the music as the song moves on guitar distortion, high pitched black metal vocals and heavy doom metal guitar riffs make their presence known along with some melody getting added into the guitar riffing shortly after that, around the 6 minute mark deep blackened death metal growls are introduced to the song which leads to the music heading more of a drone direction for a couple of minutes and then some clean guitar parts creep their way in staying in that direction for a minute before the song returns to the heavier parts along with some grim sounding screams while also mixing in drone with doom metal which lead to the return of the acoustic guitars which also close the song.
"VI" starts off with drone sounds which sets up the mood for the acoustic guitars along with some bass guitar parts, after awhile the drum blast beats, fast, primitive black metal guitar riffing and high pitched screams make their presence known before slowing down and going into a blackened doom direction along with some heavy bass riffing, around the 7 minute mark distorted drone elements start making their way into the song as well as the return of the acoustic guitars before returning to the slow and heavier parts as well as the screams and the song closes with distorted guitar amp sounds.
Lyrics cover dark themes, while the production has a very dark, heavy and primitive sound while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the ep with the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Mizmor are a very great sounding hybrid of black metal, drone and doom and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this project. RECOMMENDED TRACK "IV"> RECOMMENDED BUY.
