Pokolj are a band from Croatia that plays a very raw and old school form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "Miiserable Spectres".
A very dark and atmospheric synth starts off the ep and a few seconds later the music gets more heavy and goes into a black metal direction along with some high pitched depressive black metal screams and when the music speeds up the songs start bringing in more raw energy along with a few blast beats.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and both of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave style and the guitars also bring in a great amount of tremolo picking and the songs are mostly done in power chords and they close the demo with a synth outro.
Pokolj plays a style of black metal that is very raw and old school and also brings in some of the early depressive style, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover dark themes.
in mu opinion Pokolj are a very great sounding raw black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Fragments Of Sanity". 8 out of 10.
