Hypothermia are a band from Sweden that plays a mixture of depressive black metal and post rock and this is a review of their 2015 album "Svartkonst" which was released by Agonia Records.
Clean electric guitar playing starts off the album along with some drum beats that also gives the music more of a post rock feeling and after a couple of minutes the music starts getting heavier and most of the songs are very long and epic in length and also bring in a great mixture of both clean and heavy parts.
The heavier sections of the music bring in a post depressive black metal style and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction and the songs avoid using vocals and focus more on instrumentals while the music does sound very progressive, calm and relaxing at times along with a decent amount of melody.
With this album Hypothermia moves away from the more black metal orientated sound of previous releases and also avoids using any vocals this time around to create an instrumental post rock album with some depressive black metal elements and the production sounds very professional.
In my opinion Hypothermia are a very decent sounding instrumental mixture of black metal and post rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Invokation" and "Regnvals". 7/5 out of 10.
