Neoheresy are a solo project from Poland that plays a pagan form of black metal with some folk, ambient and symphonic elements and this is a review of his 2016 album "Potop" which was released by Elegy Records.
Thunder and rain sounds along with classical guitars and shamanistic beats start off the album along with some synths a few seconds later and the music starts adding in more of a medieval folk music atmosphere and after awhile melodic vocals and pagan chanting make their presence known on the recording.
Violins can be heard in the music briefly and on the intro grim black metal screams start becoming a huge part of the recording along with the music getting heavier and the synths also get more epic while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and later tracks bring in ambient elements and melodic guitar leads.
When the music speeds up it uses tremolo picking and blast beats bringing in more of a raw black metal style to the recording while also mixing it in with the more atmospheric side and later t racks also bring in a small amount of spoken word parts and when female vocals are utilized they are usually mixed in the background..
Neoheresy plays a musical style that takes a mid 90's pagan/black metal mid paced sound and mixes it in with symphonic, dark ambient and medieval folk music to create something very dark, original, epic and ritualistic, the production sounds very dark and r aw while the lyrics are written in Polish and cover Paganism themes.
In my opinion Neoheresy are a very great sounding pagan/black metal project with element s of ambient, symphonic and folk music and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dar" "Dotyk Albo Miecz" and "Potop". 8/5 out of 10.
