O The Experiment are a 1 man band from Greece that plays a very experimental form of black metal with only bass guitars and vocals and this is a review of his self released and self titled 2013 album.
"Prophet In Blood" begins with some heavy bass guitars which lead to some grim sounding black metal screams and as the song moves on the bass guitar starts bringing in some leads.
"Black Elf" begins with some slow and heavy bass guitar riffs that utilize some variety and a minute later high pitched screams become a part of the song and after awhile the bass guitars get more aggressive for a few seconds before slowing down and after awhile you can h ear some post black metal style riffing before going into another solo.
"D.I.E (Death Is Electic)" begins with some heavy amp distortion sounds which brings in experimental sounds along with some background grim black metal vocals which start getting more high pitched towards the end.
"The River" begins with heavy bass guitar riffs which leads to some depressive black metal screams which take over for a few minutes before the bass guitars return and start getting heavier towards the end.
'Waiting For Something To Die To Eat" begins with some bass power chords and a minute later grim screams make their way into the song and after awhile the bass starts bringing in some single note riffing while also keeping around the power chords.
"Demon" begins with some fast and primitive black metal bass guitar riffs and after awhile they slow down and start mixing in with some dark ambient elements which lead to some black metal vocals and after awhile the bass starts utilizing some doom metal elements but still returning to the faster parts at times.
"Ritual To Nothingness" begins with some dark bass guitar playing and after awhile it starts bringing in other sounds and a few minutes later there are some spoken word parts being utilized.
Song lyrics cover dark themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion O The Experiment are a very great sounding experimental black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Prophet In Blood" "Waiting For Something To Die To Eat" and "Demon". RECOMMENDED BUY.
