Black Antlers are an international band with members from both U.S.A and Croatia that plays a mixture of raw black metal and ambient and this is a reviewing of their 2013 demo which was released by Symbol Of Domination Productions.
A distorted noise starts off the demo along with some acoustic guitars a few seconds later and on the second track elements of dark ambient and melodic chants are added into the music along with a couple of the tracks being long and epic in length and the spoken word aprts have a demonic tone to them.
Once grim screams are added into the music the recording starts going for a very fast and r aw black metal sound that uses a great amount of blast beats and the vocals also start getting more high pitched and suicidal at times while some parts they go into a deeper direction and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the riffs also bring in a small amount of melody and they bring in ambient elements which they mix in with the more raw style of black metal.
Black Antlers plays a style of black metal that is very raw and underground while also mixing in ambient at times to make the music stand out a bit more, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover nature themes.
In my opinion Black Antlers are a very great sounding mixture of raw black metal and ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Erasing hate" and "Inner Peace". 8 out of 10.
