Numenorean are a band from Calgary, Alberta, Canada that plays an atmospheric form of post black metal and this is a review of their 2014 demo which was released by Filth Regime Records.
Acoustic guitars start off the demo giving the music a progressive feeling and a few seconds later the music starts going into more of a melodic post black metal direction along with some clean singing vocals before going into grim screams and the music also alternates between both clean and heavy parts.
Both of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with the vocals utilizing both melodic singing and black metal vocals which also have a depressive tone to them at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when solos and leads are added into the music they continue the melodic tradition of the bands musical style and on the second track the band adds in some raw tremolo picking to their post black metal sound and towards the end of the demo a small amount of spoken word parts and synths can be heard before speeding up a bit and adding in a few seconds of blast beats.
Numenerean plays a style of post black metal/gaze that is very melodic and atmospheric sounding while also making both of the tracks very melancholic and progressive, the production sounds very dark yet powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover darkness and nature themes.
In my opinion Numenerean are a very great sounding post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Follow The Sun". 8 out of 10.
