This is a review of another recording from The Great He-Goat which continues their old school and depressive approach to black metal with the demo being self released in 2013 and called "Kantharos Raised Above Me".
"Kantharos Raised Above Me" which is the title track as well as the first song on the demo opens up with drum beats and black metal style guitar and bass riffs which also lead to grim vocals kicking in as well as the guitar riffing getting more melodic and halfway through the song there is a brief use of guitar solos and leads as well as some spoken word parts.
"The Cloak Of Sorrow 2013" begins with acoustic guitar playing and a few seconds later heavy guitar and bass riffs along with drums kick in and after awhile the music goes into a more melodic and mid paced direction along with black metal vocals for a few seconds but being mostly instrumental and there is also a brief use of fast and clean parts as well as a few seconds of synths and towards the end guitar solos and leads are utilized for a short period of time.
Song lyrics cover dark and depressive themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful and heavy sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording along with the last song being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding demo from The Great He_goat and if you are a fan of old school, melodic and depressive black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Kantharos Raised Above Me". RECOMMENDED
