Morodh are a band from Russia that has been featured before in this zine and plays a depressive form of post black metal and this is a review of their 2012 demo which was released by Satanath Records.
A very atmospheric synth sound starts off the demo along with a melodic post metal guitar lead a few seconds later as well as some high pitched depressive black metal screams and both of them dominate the recording and the guitar riffs also use a great amount of melody while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Clean playing along with a small amount of acoustic guitars can be heard in some parts of the songs and violins are brought onto the second track which is also long and epic in length and all of the music remains true to a very slow musical direction and you can also hear a touch of ambient at times and they close the ep with a short acoustic instrumental.
Mordh played a style of post black metal on this recording that was very depressive and displayed more of a raw sound than what was to be heard on later recordings, the production sounds very raw yet heavy while the lyrics cover hopelessness, loneliness and despair themes.
In my opinion this was a very great sounding recording from Mordh and if you are a fan of depressive post black metal, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Hopelessness". 8 out of 10.
