Circle Of Noose are a solos project from Brazil that plays a very experimental form of black metal and this is a review of his 2015 demo "Spreading Anti Human Propaganda II" which was released by Depressive Illusions Records.
A very dark and raw black metal sound starts off the demo and after a few seconds melodic guitar leads and the brief sounds of a human tortured are added into the music which also sets up the mood for grim black metal screams to become a very huge part of the recording and the music also gets very progressive at times.
Synths can be heard in some parts of the songs without ever over powering the music and they also add in a touch of ambient and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and some songs also bring in a brief use of spoken word parts and when the music speeds up blast beats can be heard and the riffs also bring in a vintage 90's style to them and the music gets very avant garde at times but in less of a mainstream and more in an underground fashion and as the album progresses elements of depressive black metal can be heard.
Circle Of Noose plays a style of black metal that can be very grim, raw and depressive for the most part while also adding in avant garde and experimental elements to create a very original sound, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Circle Of Noose are a very great sounding raw, experimental black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Rapist Of Souls" "Vultures Circling Above Carnage And Rape" and "Gnaw their Bones". 8 out of 10.
