Hornwood Fell are a band from Italy that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw, atmospheric and nature orientated form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Yheri" which was released by Avantgarde Music.
Experimental sounds start off the album before going into a very fast and raw old school black metal direction t hat also utilizes a great amount of blast beats and high pitched screams and clean playing along with acoustic guitars can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and they give the songs more of a progressive feeling when they are utilized.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and some of the tracks bring in a small amount of clean playing and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the guitar solos and leads when they are utilized are very dark and melodic sounding and there are also a good amount of atmospheric elements present throughout the recording and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses a touch of psychedelia can be heard and they also bring in an acoustic instrumental before closing the album with a heavier track.
Hornwood Fell expand on the 90's Norwegian influenced style of black metal from the previous recording and also gets more atmospheric and progressive this time around, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness and nature themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Hornwood Fell and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Walking In the Woods" "The Snowstorm" and "Them". 8 out of 10.
