Barzakh are a band from Indonesia that plays a very melodic and old school form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 promo.
"Shadow In The Grief" opens up with drum beats before adding in some fast old school black metal guitar riffs along with a mixture of growls and grim screams and you can hear dark sounding melodies in the guitar riffs along with a small amount of blast beats and the song also alternates between mid paced and fast parts.
"She's Not Honoured" begins with drum beats before adding in old school and melodic black metal guitar and bass riffs which leads up to grim screams and blast beats and then the music starts to alternate between mid paced and fast parts along with a brief use of deep growls.
Song lyrics cover dark themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it in the mid 90's direction.
In my opinion Barzakh are a very great sounding old school and melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this promo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Shadow In The Grief". RECOMMENDED.
