Olu are a 1 man band from Turkey that plays a very depressive form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2013 album "Cenaze Evi".
"Cenaze Evi" which is also the first song on the album as well as title track opens up with dark sounding guitar riffs and drum beats before adding in black metal screams and the song sticks to a slow depressive black metal direction.
"Dolunca Mezarina Ya Mur" begins with dark and melodic sounding guitar riffs and drum beats along with some depressive black metal screams a few seconds later and the riffing remains the same throughout the song.
"Karani in ycinde Bekliyorum" opens up with dark and distorted sounding guitar riffs along with some drum b eats shortly after that and you can also hear some melody in the guitar riffing which also leads up to some grim sounding depressive vocals.
"Simsiyah Gokyuzu" kicks in with fast, raw and primitive sounding black metal guitar riffs, drum beats and high pitched depressive black metal screams and a few seconds later the music goes into a slower direction as well as alternating between fast and slow parts.
"Son Nefes" starts up with raw black metal guitar riffs and drum beats which also leads up to some grim sounding high pitched screams and a minute later the music goes into a faster direction and then alternating between mid paced and fast parts.
"Tedergin Hep Ruhum" comes in with distorted sounding guitar riffing and drum beats and a few seconds later grim, depressive screams make their way into the song and the riff remains the same throughout the song.
"Yalnizlik" hits it off with sound effects along with some synths a few seconds later and the song is an atmospheric, instrumental ambient song.
"Yntihar" which is also the last song on the album begins with avant garde and experimental sound effects along with some drum b eats a few seconds later and the song is another instrumental ambient song.
Song lyrics are written in Turkish and cover dark and depressive themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Olu are a very great sounding depressive black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album> RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cenaze Evi" "Simsiyah Gokyuzu:" and "Tedergin Hep Ruhum". RECOMMENDED BUY.
