Book Of Sand/The Bees And The Butterflies/Mouthbreather/2011 EP Review


  This  is  a  review  of  another  recording from Book  Of  Sand  with  the  musical  style  being  experimental  black  metal  mixed  with  folk  music with  the  ep  being  called  "The  Bees  And  The  Butterflies" which  was  released  in 2011  by  Mouthbreather.

  "Now  The  Green  Blade  Arises"  begins with  some  violins  and  then  the  primitive  black  metal  guitar  riffs,  drums,  synths  and  depressive  screams  start  kicking  in  along  with  some  epic  and  atmospheric  elements  being  thrown  in.

  "Black  Is  The  Color"  begins  with  some  violins  before  the  fast,  raw  and  primitive  sounding  black  metal  guitar  riffs  kick  in along  with  some  drums,  synths  and  high  pitched  screams  while  also  keeping  around  the  violins.

  "Young  Girl  Cut  Down  In  Her  Prime"  begins  with  some  violins  before  some slow  and  heavy guitar  riffs,  high pitched  depressive  screams,  drums  and  synths  start  kicking  in  and  the  song  closes  with  some  experimental  noise  sounds.

  "All  The  Pretty  Horses"  begins  with  some  violins  before  the  fast,  raw  and  primitive  sounding  black  metal  guitar  riffs,  drums  and  high  pitched  screams  kick  in  along  with  some  synths  that  bring  in  more  folk  music  elements.

  "Wayfaring  Stranger"  begins with  some  violins  and  the  song  is  an  all  instrumental  folk  cover  song.

  "Arran  Boat  Song"  begins  with  some  violins  before  the  heavy  guitar  riffs,  drums  and  synths  start kicking  in  and  there  are  no  vocals  present  on  this  song  with  the  music  being  all  instrumental.

  Song  lyrics  cover  American Folklore  themes,  while  the  production  has   a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound to  it.

  In  my  opinion this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Book  Of  Sand  and  if  you  are  a  fan of  experimental  black  metal  mixed  with  folk  music,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Now  The  Green  Blade  Arises"  and  "All  The  Pretty  Horses".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
