Mesarthim are a band from Australia that has been featured before in this zine and plays an atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Pillars" which was released by Avantgarde Music.
Atmospheric sounds start off the ep along with the music getting heavier a few seconds later and mixing it in with ambient style synths which also gives the songs more of an epic feeling and after awhile high pitched black metal screams make their presence known on the recording and the riffs also use a great amount of melody.
Elements of electronic music can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they stick to a very melodic musical direction and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the songs stick to a slow musical direction and also mixes in symphonic elements and they close the ep with an instrumental track.
Mesarthim creates another black metal recording that is very atmospheric while also mixing in elements of ambient and electronic music, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover cosmos and existence themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Meserthim and if you are a fan of atmospheric and ambient black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pillars" and "Constellation". 8 out of 10.
