Dargar/Self Titled/Rising Beast Recordings/2010 Demo Review


  Dargar  are  a  duo  from Los  Angeles,  California  that  plays  a mixture of  black  metal  and noise  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  titled  2010  demo  which  was released  by Rising Beast  Recordings.

  "4:56"  begins  with some  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  before  the  drum  programming  and  primitive  guitar  riffs come  in along with  some  deep  demonic  growls  which  also  leads  up  to  some  elements  of  harsh  noise  being  utilized.

  "3:56''  begins  with  some  slow  and  dark  sounding  guitar  riffs  along  with  some  programmed  drum  beats and  a  few  seconds  later the  black  metal  screams  kick  in  along  with  some  grim  elements  being utilized.

  "6:52"  begins  with  some sound  effects  which  leads up  to  some drum  programming  that brings  in  elements  of  noise  into  the  song  along  with  some  distorted  guitar  parts and  black  metal  screams  and  halfway  through  the  song  there  are  some  slow  and  primitive  sounding  guitar  riffs  being  utilized  as  well  as  the  vocals  utilizing  some  more  grim  elements.

  "3:47"  begins  with  some  drum  programming  and  industrial  style  guitar  riffs  before  the black  metal  screams  start  kicking  and  after  awhile  the  guitar  riffing  starts  getting  more  primitive  sounding  and  you  can  hear some noise  sounds  in  the  background.

  "3;48"  begins with  some  programming  and  grim  vocals  and  a  minute  later  guitar  riffs  start making  their  presence  known  along  with  some  depressive  screams  before  going  into  a  more  fast  and  primitive  direction.for  awhile  before  slowing down  again.

  "6:42"  begins  with  some  programmed  beats  before the  black  metal  screams  and  drone  style  guitar  riffs  start  kicking  in  and  after  awhile  the  music  goes  into  a  more  fast  and  primitive  direction  for  a  few  seconds  before  returning  back  to  the  slower  parts  and  then  switching  back  and  forth  between  fast  and  slow  parts.

  Song  themes,  cover  darkness,  while  the  production  has  a  very dark,  raw and  primitive  sound  with  a  couple  of  the  songs  being long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  Dargar  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  black  metal  and  noise  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  duo.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "3:56''  and  "6:42".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
