Seventh Genocide are a band from Italy that plays post black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Breeze Of Memories" which was released by Naked Lunch Records.
Post rock style acoustic guitars start off the album along with some drum beats and shoegaze elements a few seconds later and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when the music speeds up it goes from more of a fast, raw and melodic black metal sound that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams and you can also a great amount of melody in the guitar solos and leads along with some of the tracks being very long and epic in length and the songs also alternate between both clean and heavy parts quite a bit throughout the recording and the acoustic guitars also gives the songs more of a progressive feeling and they close the album with an instrumental track.
Seventh Genocide plays a style of post black metal that is very modern, melodic and atmospheric sounding while also having its raw moments and also has a more aggressive vocal approach than most bands of this genre, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover nature, spirituality, afterlife, nostalgia and sadness themes.
In my opinion Seventh Genocide are a very great sounding post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Breeze Of Memories" and "Summer Dusk". 8 out of 10.
