Dizziness are a band from Greece that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw form of Hellenic black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Bound By Strength" which was released by Old Graves Productions.
Thunderstorm sounds start off the album along with some spoken word parts which are also used on other songs as well and a few seconds later the music goes into a heavier direction while also using a great amount of melody and adding in high pitched black metal screams and after awhile blast beats can be heard in certain sections of the recording.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and some of the tracks are also very long and epic in length and when solos and leads are utilized they are in a very melodic direction and the song s also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the tracks also bring in melodic chants and when synths are used briefly they add more of an epic and atmospheric feeling to the recording and they close the album with Varathron's "Deep Beneath An Ancient Dominion".
Dizziness creates another great Hellenic style black metal album that is a perfect balance between rawness, melody and epic atmospheres, the production sound s very raw yet powerful at the same time while the lyrics cover war, folklore, ancient heritage, mysticism and Hellenic Pride.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Dizziness and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Legion" "Myrmidons" and "Prometheus". 8 out of 10.
