Yith are a 1 man band from the United States that plays a mixture of raw, atmospheric black metal and doom and this is a review of his self released 2012 demo.
The demo begins with the sounds of wind and a few seconds later the recording goes into a more dark and raw black metal sound along with some grim vocals and screams as well as speeding up a bit and adding in blast beats as well as bringing in a mixture of mid paced and fast parts along with some morbid melodies and powerful bass lines and after awhile guitar leads become a part of the music.
As the demo progresses old school doom metal elements are added into the music and a couple brief dark ambient instrumental make their way onto the recording as well as the demo adding in more melodic black metal sounds on the following tracks while also having a more grim approach and bringing the doom elements into the slower sections of the guitar riffing and the music finds its sound with raw black metal being mixed in with some depressing doom metal.
Yith bring in an original sound with their music with the black metal parts beign as dark, raw and grim as that genre can be while the doom metal parts bring an old school and depressing approach to the demo as well as adding in instrumentals that are in the more dark ambient direction and the production is very dark and raw sounding along with the lyrics covering supernatural, cold and dark themes.
In my opinion Yith are a very great sounding mixture of raw black metal and depressing doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ghosts Of Poenari Castle" and "The Coldest grave". 8 out of 10.
