Gethsemane are a 1 man band from the Netherlands that plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of his self titled 2013 demo which was released by Kimchi Kills Records.
"I' which is the first track on the demo begins with distorted sounds and acoustic guitars and a few seconds later blast beats from the drums and fast and raw black metal guitar riffs kick in along with some vocals that are mixed down low in the mix but have a grim feeling to them and after awhile guitar solos and leads start coming into the song which also leads to the music going into a slower direction along with some whispers.
"II" begins with fast, raw and primitive black metal guitar riffs, blast beats from the drums and grim screams and the music sticks to mostly a fast direction but does slow down towards the end and closes with a spoken word part.
"III" which is the last song on the demo starts up with slow and distorted sounding guitar riffs and leads along with some drums and you can hear talking in the background and then the music speeds up and goes into a faster direction along with blast beats and weird sounding vocals.
Song lyrics are based on the writings of Simon Vestdijk, while the production has a very heavy, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Gethsemane are a very great sounding raw black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACK "II". RECOMMENDED BUY.
