This is a review of another recording from Spire with the musical style being an atmospheric and ambient form of black metal with the ep being called "Metamorph" and released by Art Of Propaganda".
"-" begins with some avant garde sound effects and spoken word samples and the song serves as an intro for the ep.
"Zygote" begins with some melodic guitar riffs and leads along with some drum beats and then starts getting a little bit more heavy and dark and after a couple of minutes grim sounding black metal screams start kicking in and towards the end the riffing gets slightly faster and the vocals utilize a little bit more hatred and the song closes with some ambient noises.
"Larva" begins with some dark sounding guitar riffs and drum beats and a few seconds later the grim black metal screams make their presence known in the song and later on the music goes into a faster direction for awhile before returning to a more slow and atmospheric direction but bringing back the faster parts at times which also leads to the music utilizing more melodic elements and the song closes with some ambient drones.
"Parturience" begins with primitive black metal guitar riffs and atmospheric sounds and after a minute drum beats and grim vocals start creeping their way into the song along with some background synths that are mixed down very low and then the music starts getting a little bit more heavier and the song closes with some avant garde drones.
"Mort" begins with some fast and primitive ambient black metal guitar riffs, drum beats and grim vocals before slowing down and adding in some atmospheric guitar leads which also utilize some melody as well as coming in and out of the song before speeding up again but they do return to the slower sections throughout the song as well as adding a good amount of diverse elements and the song closes with some sound effects that come in and out.
Song lyrics cover Nihilism themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding ep from Spire and if you are a fan of atmospheric, ambient black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Zygote" and "Mort". RECOMMENDED BUY.
