Snogg are a duo from Slovenia that plays a free ride form of black metal and this is a review of their self released and self titled 2016 ep.
Natural noises along with programmed beats start off the ep along with some weird sounding spoken word parts which also leads up to some ambient and atmospheric sounding synths being added into the recording as well as the sounds of children playing and the music is very avant garde and experimental.
After awhile distorted guitars make their presence on the recording and also mix in some melodic yet depressing guitar leads along with some grim black metal screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while blast beats can also be heard briefly when the music speeds up.
They also add in clean singing operatic vocals into some parts of the song which is over 26 minutes in length as well a s going into many different directions musically ad the track also alternates between both the avant garde and metal parts while the faster sections of the music bring in more of a raw style of black metal and toward s the end melodic guitar leads are adde d into the music.
Snogg plays an improv musical style that is mostly rooted in raw black metal while also bringing in more of an original avant garde and experimental approach to the genre, the production sound s very dark and raw while the lyrics cover philosophical themes.
In my opinion Snogg are a very great sounding free ride black metal band and if you are looking for something that is very different, you should check out this ep. 8 out of 10.
