Zygmythkaupt are a solo project from Cleveland, Ohio that plays a very raw, noisy and depressive form of black metal and this is the first review of plenty of his fist demo which was released in 2012 by Depressive Illusions Records.
Nature and wind sounds start off the demo along with some filed recordings and after a few seconds the music goes into more of a black metal direction along with some morbid sounding melodies and once the screams kick in the music gets more fast and raw and also introduces blast beats onto the recording.
As the demo progresses the music gets more noisier and the songs are also very short in length with the longest still being under 2 minutes and the songs also bring in the more raw and underground style of early 90's black metal while some of the slower riffs have a depressive side to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and after awhile a small amount of death metal growls can be heard.
Zygmythkaupt plays a style of black metal this is very raw, noisy, old school and lo-fi sounding while also having its depressive moments and the lyrics cover dark and blasphemous themes while the production sounds very dark and raw.
In my opinion are a very great sounding raw and lo-fi black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "I" "V" "X" and "XII". 8 out of 10.
