Crown Of Twilight/Mist/2013 EP Review

  Crown Of  Twilight  are  a  band  from  Poland  that  plays  an instrumental,  raw  and  primitive  form  of  ambient  black metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2013  ep  "Mist".

  "Labyrinths  Of  Unrest"  begins  with  some  dark  ambient  sounding  synths  and  serves  as  an  intro for  the ep.

 "Moon  Setting Over  The  Forest"  with  some  slow  black  metal  guitars  riffs  and  drums  beats  with  the  synths  coming into  the  background  shortly  after  that  and  towards the  end  the  synths  take  over  and  take  the song  into  a  dark ambient  direction.

  "Mist (I)" begins with  some  fast,  raw  and  primitive  black  metal  guitar  riffs  and  drum  beats  before  the  synths  start making their  presence  known  while  also  keeping  around  the  drums  and  guitars  and  a  few  seconds  later  it  starts going  into  a  slower  direction  before  switching  back  and  forth  between  slow  and  fast  parts.

  "Into  The  Cold  Unknown" begins with  some  dark  sounding  ambient  synths  and  this  song  remains  in  that  direction  and  is  a  little  bit  under  2  minutes.

  "Lost  In  The  Caverns Of  Hatred"  begins  with  some  slow  and  primitive  black  metal  guitar  riffs  and  drum  beats  and  a  minute  later  the  synths start making  their  way  into  the  song  and  brings  in dark  ambient  elements.

  "Cold  Swamps  And  Black  Rivers" begins  with  some  black  metal guitar  riffs  that  are  mixed  down  in  the  mix  along  with  some  drums  and  then  the  dark  ambient  synths  make  their  presence  known  in  the  background  of  the  song.

  "Mist(II)"  begins  with  some  dark  ambient  sounding  synths  and  there  are  no  guitars  present  on this  song.

  Song  themes  cover  darkness,  nature  and forest  themes,  while  the  production  has  a  very  dark,  raw and  primitive  sound  to it.

  In  my  opinion Crown Of  Twilight  are  a  very  great  sounding  instrumental,  raw  and  primitive  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre, you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Moon  Setting Over  The  Forest"  "Mist (I)"  and  "Cold  Swamps  And  Black  Rivers".  RECOMMENDED BUY.
