Third Storm are a band from Sweden that has a history dating back to the 80's and plays a raw mixture of black and doom metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Taritya Me" which was released by Dark Descent Records.
Air raid sirens sounds start off the ep and after a minute the music gets heavy with doom metal riffing and high pitched black metla screams and w hen t he music speeds up blast beats and a great amount of 80's South American influences can be heard and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Elements of death metal along with some morbid sounding melodies can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while the solos and leads remain true to a very dark and extreme style of metal while also being melodic at times and you can also hear all of the musical instruments on the recording along with both of the tracks being very long and epic in length and the music also brings in Gregorian chants briefly which also makes the music sound more ritualistic as well as bringing in death metal growls at times and the second track brings in a brief use of synths.
Third Storm plays a musical style that takes a very raw form of black metal and mixes it in with early 90's doom and a touch of 80's extreme metal to create a style of their own, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics are written in Swedish and cover Philosophy, Duality, Creation Of Universe, Hell and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Third Storm are a very great sounding raw mixture of black and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Oath-Nava-Agir". 8 out of 10.
